Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (HAECO Group) and EcoSmart Energy announced the official launch of the largest solar project in Hong Kong, pursuant to which EcoSmart will invest in the construction of a solar photovoltaic system with a total capacity of 3 megawatt (MW) on the rooftop of HAECO's aircraft maintenance hangar No. 2 and 3 at the Hong Kong International Airport. 
 

The system consisted of a total of approximately 6,000 solar panels and its annual output of electricity is 2,877,321 kWh (equivalent to the electricity consumption of 631 Hong Kong households). It is estimated that approximately 1,064,609 kilograms of carbon emission (equivalent to planting 48,795 trees) can be effectively reduced per year.

The project is expected to be completed in April 2022, marking an important milestone in the sustainable development of the aviation industry. HAECO and EcoSmart hope to take this feat to fulfill their corporate social responsibilities by committing to and encourage the use of renewable energy to promote sustainable development.

The income from feed-in tariff can be utilised as tariff subsidies, and part of the proceeds is used to support the World Wide Fund For Nature Hong Kong, a partner of EcoSmart, for more companies and institutions in Hong Kong to understand the benefits of installing solar photovoltaic systems on idle rooftops, joining hands to reduce carbon emissions and cope with the climate change.

"Our vision, mission and values reflects our commitment to sustainable development and part of this is to lead the industry towards renewable energy," said Patrick HK Wong, Executive General Manager (Line Maintenance) of HAECO Hong Kong. "On top of providing customers with a wide range of aviation services while operating our business, we also fulfill our corporate social responsibilities to our environment and community and commit to as well as encourage the use of renewable energy.

As stated by Stephen Ma, Chief Executive Officer of EcoSmart Energy, "Our team, though, has undertaken a number of solar projects recently, the one commissioned by HAECO was definitely the most challenging. First of all, it took more than one year for preliminary preparation involving loads of work, such as obtaining approval from China Light and Power and all sorts of relevant applications, more importantly, the installations shall be in line with the development of Hong Kong International Airport and in compliance with specific requirements of aviation security, the security and safety requirements are uncompromising."
