Pandrol adds solar panels to our South Africa factory

Since March, our factory in South Africa has benefited from the installation of 295 solar panels, each of 350W generating capacity.

The panels generate between 4% and 8% of the factory’s electricity usage, depending on activity levels. Power feeds
directly into Pandrol’s internal electricity system. The solar panels’ performance on a day-to-day basis is reviewed via an app and in the first month alone, the system saved over 7 tons of CO2 emissions – equivalent to 673 trees!

A fantastic example of a local initiative that will make a real difference to our carbon footprint and the future of the planet.
