Southend Airport, located east of the capital of Great Britain, is installing solar energy panels from Turkey, the company leading the project announced, as reported by Anadolu Agency’s Energy Terminal.

Over 9,500 high-efficiency solar panels were produced in Istanbul, where Chinese company CSUN established the country’s largest solar panel factory in 2013, with 350 MW of capacity. It was initially focused solely on cell manufacturing and it supplied European solar module manufacturers. CSUN added solar module production capacity of 1.2 GW to its portfolio. It has sold over 1.4 GW of modules around the world, according to the statement.

The solar plant, with 2.5 MW of installed capacity, plans to come online in the near future. The plant is expected to generate 20% of the airport’s annual electricity needs. With the solar panels, the airport is estimated to prevent 1,053 tonnes of carbon emissions per year.
