Kottmeyer specializes in international freight forwarding and renovation. The company has now chosen to get solar cells from Green Energy/MIPV.PRO
For more than half a century, the company Kottmeyer GmbH and Co. has been working on freight forwarding and renovation. Throughout the years, a motto, which symbolizes one of the most important values in the company, has followed them: “Stagnation means regression”.
This motto and this way of thinking have now resulted in them installing solar cells from Green Energy / MIPV.pro in collaboration with EUROPART.
Requirements and readiness for conversion
In an industry like Kottmeyers, with a myriad of rules and laws that are constantly being tightened, it is necessary to think of new possibilities for a greener profile. This is where solar cells come into the picture.
With a fleet of approximately 210 vehicles, there is a lot to be gained from the fuel savings provided by solar cells. And the battery life will also be significantly increased. The goal for Kottmeyer is to achieve CO2 neutrality.
Knowledge and recommendations
Oliver Böcher from Green Energy Germany has installed the solar cells at Kottmeyer. Initially, a 110 Wp set has been mounted on a truck, model Scania S450. Regarding the question on whether the company has heard about flexible MIPV (Mobile Integrated photoVoltaic) panels, Horst Kottmeyer says:
“We got them recommended through EUROPART and have read an article about them installing solar cells at the company Duvenbeck, which inspired us. We need to have solar cells on more trucks, and in the future the next new trucks will be equipped with solar cells from the beginning.”
Solar panels from Green Energy/MIPV.pro are produced from recycled material and are 100 percent recyclable. Read more here.
We at Green Energy/MIPV.pro are proud of the new collaboration and wish Kottmeyer congratulations on their first trucks with solar cells. There is also a solar cell solution that fits your needs! Contact your local EUROPART today and drive towards a greener future.
