On Monday 5th July 2021, a roundtable will take place to discuss the installation of a solar park at Rotterdam The Hague Airport (RTHA). Unisun Energy BV is working with the RTHA, Rotterdam Hague Innovation Airport (RHIA) and Eneco to realise the project. Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management, Cora van Nieuwenhuijzen, will take a seat at the table together with Dick Benschop, President and CEO of the Royal Schiphol Group and Andre Kempenaars, CEO of Unisun Energy BV.
There is wide spread ambition from the aviation industry and policy makers to make aviation sustainable and RTHA and RHIA are taking the first step with this solar project that will be installed parallel to the runway. Once operational, the solar park will supply approximately 12,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of clean energy annually.
