MSD Ballydine, working with ESB’s Smart Energy Services, has built the 7.3MW ground mounted solar PV array to support the site in significantly reducing its carbon footprint, in line with MSD’s ambitious climate goals. It is estimated that the system will generate approximately 7.9GWh of clean renewable electricity for the MSD site, ensuring up to 20% of the site’s energy requirements are now  coming from renewable energy sources.Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,solar pump

Last year, MSD announced its ambitious goals to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations by 2025. These goals build on MSD’s long-standing focus of supporting the global effort to achieve the Paris Agreement goals by reducing demand for energy and minimising greenhouse gas emissions. This project is just one of the many innovative initiatives MSD is developing to reduce emissions across their operations.Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,solar pump

Commenting on the opening of the Ballydine solar farm Leo Varadkar TD, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment said: “Congratulations to MSD and the ESB on this ground-breaking project. It’s our responsibility to leave the planet in a better place than we found it. It’ll take a huge effort from all parts of society and enterprise has a pivotal role to play. By investing in Ireland’s largest solar project, which will fulfil over 20% of MSD Ballydine’s energy needs. MSD is taking the lead, while also securing a renewable energy source for its operations into the future, which we know now more than ever is crucial. It’s really fantastic to see such innovation and leadership. The very best of luck to the teams involved.”Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,solar pump
