The Spanish airline Iberia has announced plans to install solar panels on its 20,000-square metre aircraft engine maintenance facilities at Madrid airport in a bid to cut carbon dioxide emissions.
The project is expected to generate 80 million KW/h to supply the company’s hangars, workshops and offices - that is estimated to be equivalent to powering 800 homes.
The plant, which consists of more than 5,300 solar panels, is in line with the airline's strategy to reduce the carbon footprint of its activities and achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
