As part of Finnair’s sustainability strategy, the new COOL Nordic Cargo Hub at Helsinki Airport utilizes solar panels located on the building’s roof. A total of 1,200 panels have been installed, each producing 260 watts of energy. The annual energy production level is estimated at 265 MWh/a, representing over 10 percent of the building’s annual energy consumption.

“Sustainability is important for Finnair Cargo customers as well as their customers,” says Janne Tarvainen, Finnair Cargo’s managing director. “Our new cargo hub features advanced automation technology and has temperature controlled areas for pharmaceuticals and other perishable products. The solar panels support the energy efficiency of the terminal.”

The sustainability features will earn the COOL terminal a “very good” level in BREEAM sustainability certification.
