Solar Panels

The engine assembly plant is fitted with over 21,000 photovoltaic panels, which produce 5.8MW of energy. This accounts for more than 30% of the plant's energy requirements. The panels have enough energy to power more than 1,600 homes and reduce the plant's carbon footprint by over 2,400 tonnes per year.
