On Wednesday 14th of June, Bo Lindberg Andersen, who is the CEO of the LEMAN Group, visited the roof of the head office in collaboration with Simon Borbiconi, who is a partner and co-owner of NRGreen, who supplied and installed the solar cell system, to mark the commissioning of the system.
"At LEMAN, we are very excited to take this big and important step towards becoming a more sustainable company. By investing in solar energy, we want to show our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and contributing to a more sustainable future. These solar systems are only a step on the way, and we will continue to explore and implement different solutions to reduce our climate footprint," Bo Lindberg Andersen explains.
One of the largest roof-based solar systems in Greater Copenhagen
The solar cell plant covers an area of 4,000 m2 and is thus one of the largest roof-based plants installed in the greater Copenhagen area. The electricity generated will primarily be used to supply our facilities and support the daily operations at our head office and the associated warehouse activities. Surplus energy production from the plant on sunny summer days will be supplied to the area's general electricity supply.
There is also great satisfaction with the project from NRGreen's side:
"It has been a pleasure to collaborate with LEMAN on the development and installation of the solar system, and we are happy to be able to contribute positively to both LEMAN's climate investments and to the green transition as a whole. We have collaborated with many large Danish companies, and for us it has made good sense to also develop green solutions together with LEMAN," says Simon Borbiconi, who is a partner and co-owner of NRGreen and who was present at the opening of the solar plant.
Continuation of LEMAN's climate strategy
The production from the solar plant is expected to be 741,646 kWh annually, which corresponds to a saving of 116.44 tonnes of CO2 or approx. 200 average Danes' annual consumption, and it is a continuation of our strategy to set up solar systems on both new and existing buildings around the world. In 2021, for example, a solar cell system was installed on the roof of the warehouse used by LEMAN in Vestby in Norway.
In addition, in the past year, we have given customers the opportunity to freely read the climate impacts of their shipments, just as we have switched to lithium batteries on trucks in warehouses and electric cooling of pharma trucks during parking.
