DOKVAST TRANSFORMS ROOF OF NEWLOGIC VI INTO SUSTAINABLE POWER PLANT2019-12-2
DOKVAST transformed the roof of its building NewLogic VI at industrial estate Ekkersrijt in Eindhoven / Son into a sustainable power plant with the installation of 16,864 solar panels. The roof surface of 41,000 m2 comprises high-efficiency panels, with an individual nominal power of 300 Wp and a total capacity of 5.1 MWp. The expected yield is 4,400 Mwh per annum, with which approximately 1,300 households can be provided with local green power.
The solar power project contributes to the sustainable targets of the immovable property developer in Oisterwijk, which meanwhile has five BREAAM ‘Outstanding’ buildings to its name. ‘DOKVAST sets the bar high in terms of sustainability. By realising one of the larger solar power projects in the Netherlands, we underline our ambition’, says Jos Klanderman, Managing Director of DOKVAST. In the summer of 2019 Jan Boersma (Alderman Son en Breugel) and Alphons van Erven (Rhenus Logistics) conducted the opening formality of the solar power project. The installation has been operational definitively since the end of June 2019.
NewLogic VI is leased by the German logistics service provider Rhenus Contract Logistics. The building was built with sustainable materials and was provided with triple glazing, additional wall and roof insulation, automatically dimming LED lighting and a heat pump installation. The distribution centre obtained a BREAAM outstanding score of no less than 87.81%. Phase 1 had already been delivered at the beginning of 2017, phase 2 will follow at the latest in 2022. The SDE decision for well over 11,000 panels has already been granted for this.
DOKVAST set up POWERLINQ B.V. for the activity of generating sustainable power at its distribution centres. KiesZon installed a total of approximately 40,000 solar panels at three distribution centres. Annually, these solar panels combined will produce no less than 11,000 MWh of solar power.
