Kuala Ketil, Malaysia, 25 November 2019 – Cleantech Solar, a leading provider of renewable energy to corporations in Asia, celebrates the commissioning of a rooftop solar PV system for Molnlycke Health Care Sdn Bhd, a world-leading medical solutions company. Over 2,600 solar panels have been deployed on top of Mölnlycke’s manufacturing facility located in Kuala Ketil through a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA). The fully operating 914 kWp PV system has been funded, designed and built, and will be operated and maintained by Cleantech Solar across the term of the agreement.
This long-term partnership between Cleantech Solar and Mölnlycke is expected to generate approximately 23,400 MWh of clean energy across the term of the agreement, that amounts to avoiding 16,200 tonnes of CO2 emission. Harnessing solar power on-site through a PPA will help Mölnlycke reduce both their environmental impact and electricity costs without making any capital investment.
Mr. Stuart Grieve, Manufacturing Director of Mölnlycke, Gloves Operations said:
“At Mölnlycke, we are committed to advancing performance in healthcare across the world that’s sustainable in the long term. With a clean energy generating solar power plant now operating on our rooftop, we are able to contribute a sustainable future by reducing our carbon footprint and meet our goal in increasing the overall health economic value of our solutions. As a company, we identify with Cleantech Solar’s commitment to excellence. They have demonstrated both the expertise and the financial capability to successfully build this solar PV system that is optimized for maximum long-term clean power generation.”
