Sri Lankan poultry company installs mega solar power generaon as part of sustainable farming
Crysbro, which is a Sri Lankan poultry producer, has reportedly completed the installation of a mega solar power generation system at its Galgamuwa Farm as part of its ongoing programme to embrace sustainable farming practices.
Accordingly, Crysbro has installed nearly 1,200 solar panels capable of generating a total solar power capacity of 400 kW.
The facility in Galgamuwa is a cutting-edge closed-house broiler farm where the supply of poultry feed, water, warmth, air and light for chicks is governed by an entirely automated system and it possesses six closed-house farm units that allow it to accommodate a total capacity of 300,000 chicks, the local media has repprted.
“We are thrilled to make such deep inroads in our journey as an environmentally conscious and sustainable farming practice industrial entity. Through our successful adoption of solar energy, which is a clean and emission-free source of electricity, we reaffirm our commitment to operating responsibly by restricting demand for fossil fuels, limiting greenhouse gas emissions and shrinking our overall carbon footprint,” Crysbro Senior Marketing Manager Amores Sellar has been quoted as saying in the local media.
According to reports, Crybro has demonstrated a firm desire to incorporate greener options within its operational model and this dedication is reflected in its annual practice of identifying and rewarding the most environmentally friendly of its 18 business units located across the island.
Sri Lanka is engaged in promoting renewable energy generation options in order to address the looming power crisis. The government of Sri Lanka has offered incentives to local businesses/industries that convert their facilities into using renewable energy. Power and energy sectors in Sri Lanka is currently a hotspot for business/investment opportunities. Foreign businesses/investors could therefore explore business opportunities in Sri Lanka’s power and energy sector.
