Redavia, a global market leader of cost-effective, reliable, and clean solar power for businesses, last week launched its modular solar carport product – the REDAVIA Fast Track Solar 40 Carport (FTS-40CP) – with a first installation at SGS: a global leader in inspection, testing, verification, and certification.
Redavia deployed the carport solar farm at SGS’s inspection and testing facilities at the Tema main harbour. The carport is REDAVIA’s second project at SGS after the ground-mounted solar farm Redavia deployed at the Tema site in July of 2018.
SGS’s Sustainability Strategy continues to be built around four pillars – Professional Excellence, People, Environment, and Community – supported by Group-wide policies, global programmes and local initiatives. Their Environmental pillar focuses on decreasing annual CO2 emissions, so they welcomed the chance to scale-up their renewable energy usage.
The FTS-40CP was designed to convert business parking lots into energy generation hubs. Now businesses like SGS are able to benefit from REDAVIA’s well-known cost-efficient energy and flexible lease contracts, while making the most efficient use of the land they already own by utilising their parking lot as an instrument for energy generation. Additionally, REDAVIA’s premium aluminum carport provides shading and protection for vehicles, giving an upscale parking experience.
“SGS continues to prioritise our Corporate Social Responsibility, in Ghana and across our global organisation,” said Samuel K. Gyan (Kiki), Managing Director of Anglophone West Africa (Ghana, Sierra Leone & Liberia) at SGS Ghana Limited. “We’re happy the REDAVIA carport allows us to scale up the size of our solar installation, taking another step toward closing in on our environmental goal of decreasing CO2 emissions while still making the most of our land.”
Erwin Spolders, CEO and founder of REDAVIA stated: “We’re very excited to be able to offer this new product. The FTS-40CP will enable businesses like SGS to maximise their space, gaining clean, cost-efficient energy and a refined parking experience for their customers all in one. It’s a win-win scenario”.
