10-million-dollar eco-friendly investment in a Bahrain port

APM sets its sights on solar power

by Port News Editorial Staff

APM Terminals is going to invest 10 million dollars in the port of Khalifa Bin Salman, Bahrain, to make it energy self-sufficient by the end of 2023.

A total of 20,000 photovoltaic panels are to be installed to generate 18.5 GW of electrical power annually, reducing carbon emissions from port operations by 65%.

Khalifa Bin Salman will be the first in the region to be completely solar-powered port.

The project developed by APM is an intrinsic part of the decarbonization programme developed by the terminal operator and aimed at ensuring a 70% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030.
