Dubai: Massar Solutions is awarded the prestigious Innovation in Sustainable Technologies Gold award in the category Large Companies, with its Solar Power Truck concept. This pilot program was specifically designed for one of Massar’s key customers. The concept entails the use of Solar panels placed on the roof of refrigerated trucks, powering the refrigerator unit while transporting perishable goods and to provide energy to the refers and tail lifts.
The concept was designed to achieve various objectives pertaining to sustainability, with the ultimate deliverable of decreasing CO2 emissions and lowering levels of noise. Making use of the sun’s abundant renewable energy is a way for businesses to lower their impact on the environment. Massar developed a highly innovative solution in-house, showcasing how a Mobility and Logistics company can effectively integrate such technologies.
Richard Sikkel CEO of Massar Solutions commented on winning the award and said, “We are very proud to be elected the winner of this prestigious competition.
