1 million kilowatt hours of solar power at Container Terminal Tollerort

For ten years now, electricity has been generated from solar energy on the 4,000 m² roof of the workshop building at HHLA Container Terminal Tollerort (CTT). In 2011, the electricity supplier Hamburg Energie installed a photovoltaic system consisting of solar modules here, which has been producing CO2-free electricity ever since.

The evaluation of the data has now shown that it has now been over 1 million kilowatt hours since commissioning. A great contribution to the energy turnaround in Germany and to HHLA's sustainability goals. In total, the plant has generated as much environmentally friendly electricity as 300 households consume per year. 

By the way, there is no reason to worry that this is the end of it. The sun is the largest available source of energy and is virtually inexhaustible. The annual yield of photovoltaic systems does depend on climatic conditions. But they produce a good output even in diffuse light - or better - in well-known Hamburg dirty weather. And so green electricity will continue to be produced at CTT in the future.
