Thanks to a solar panel installation of 1.5 MW from ENGIE, Gosselin is becoming a more sustainable logistics player

ENGIE installed a 1.5 MW solar panel installation at the Gosselin site in Antwerp. This installation of more than 3,000 solar panels will allow us to reduce our CO2 emissions by 535 tons per year, equivalent to the annual emissions of 268 diesel cars.

ENGIE is responsible for the installation and maintenance, as well as the financing of these solar panels through the third-party financing model of ENGIE Sun4Business. More and more companies want to use local, renewable and low-cost energy. ENGIE Sun4Business has been able to install nearly 100 MW of solar panels at businesses across the country.

The solar panel installation at Gosselin was completed at the end of February and has been operational since March. The 3056 panels were installed on the roof of the Gosselin Crown I warehouse in Deurne. With a capacity of 1528 kWp, it produces an average of 1373 MWh per year of green and local electricity, equivalent to the annual consumption of 446 families. Gosselin uses 25% of the electricity produced itself, thus covering 52% of the local energy needs of the entire Deurne site and avoiding emissions of 535 tons of CO2 per year.

"Gosselin is continuing its efforts to make its sites greener with this installation from ENGIE. In addition to solar panels, the company has advocated multimodal transport for years via inland waterways and strongly support commuting by bicycle," says Facility Director, Johan Verbaeten.

This project also contributes to our ambition to install 300 MW of solar panels at our professional customers’ sites by 2030."

Marc Smet, CEO Gosselin Group:

"The partnership with ENGIE fits perfectly with our recently renewed mission and values. Gosselin strives for awareness and wants to work on ecological and economic initiatives that benefit everyone. The installation of these 3056 solar panels went smoothly and is a 'quick win' in our commitment to sustainability."
