March 14, 2019 / Chem Eng Online

Royal Dutch Shell plc (The Hague, the Netherlands; www.shell.com) officially opened its solar park at the Shell Moerdijk Chemical Plant. With 76,000 panels, the solar park has a peak capacity of 27 megawatts, equivalent to the energy consumption of 9,000 Dutch households. The generated solar energy will be used to help power operations at Shell Moerdijk. The new solar park is one of the largest in the Netherlands. “Developing this solar power plant in Moerdijk fits within Shell’s ambition to play an active role in the Dutch energy transition,” says Marjan van Loon, president-director Shell Nederland. “We are eager to limit emissions through energy efficiency improvements of our processes and investments in new energy activities. To accelerate energy transition, it is important that we align our activities to the ideas and initiatives in society. We know dialogue and collaboration is the key to success.”
