CEVA Logistics recently installed a new solar panel system at the company’s facility in Bukit Jelutong, Malaysia. More than 1,000 panels were installed on the warehouse’s roof, with an expected annual production of 840,000 KWH to power lighting and air conditioning for the warehouse and offices.
Jaiganesh Velamuthu, managing director for Malaysia, CEVA Logistics, said: “This is a good start and the right decision. CEVA will continue to look for better ways to run our Malaysia business sustainably and to help reduce carbon emissions by adopting new technologies in our facilities.”
CEVA Logistics is reducing logistics-related carbon emissions by powering its warehouses with solar energy. The Bukit Jelutong site offers more than 316,000 square feet of space, providing contract logistics solutions mainly for consumer goods customers. With the installation of 2,800 square meters of solar panels, CEVA expects to reduce annual emissions by 500 tonnes of carbon dioxide. The company expects to add solar panels to a second warehouse on the Bukit Jelutong site in 2023. Together, they will cover 60 per cent of the total roof space of CEVA’s sites in Malaysia.
CEVA plans to add more than 400 solar panels to its 73,000-square-foot, multi-customer warehouse in Bayan Lepas in the first quarter of 2023. This new installation will contribute another 6 per cent of solar panel coverage and is projected to reduce the facility’s electricity consumption by 40 per cent and reduce emissions by 200 tonnes yearly.
