Goodyear and Enovos are to build two photovoltaic power stations at the tyre manufacturer’s testing facilities in Colmar-Berg, Luxemboug.

The two stations will produce around 5 GWh annually and reduce carbon emissions by 46.3 tons, providing clean energy for around 1,200 households for the next 20 years.

As part of the company’s Goodyear Better Future corporate responsibility strategy, the supplier previously outlined goals to reduce its environmental impact.

Goodyear maintains it is tracking well towards that target, with the photovoltaic power stations projected to add carbon-free energy into the Luxembourg energy grid starting in 2022.

The photovoltaic stations will expand on Goodyear’s long-standing relationship with Luxembourg’s main energy supplier, Enovos, to produce steam for production at its Luxembourg plant.

“At Goodyear, we are continuously working to reduce our environmental impact,” said Goodyear VP Product Development in Europe Middle East and Africa, Xavier Fraipont.
