Van der Valk Hotels has put sustainability high on its agenda and wants to take major steps with solar energy in the new year. That is why Ecorus - market leader in the implementation of large-scale solar energy projects - has been chosen as a partner with the intention of supplying at least 40 hotels in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany with solar power. The installations will be installed on the roofs of the hotels and the construction of 20 powerful solar carports of 500 kWp has also been included in the national project. The generated green electricity will be consumed by the hotels themselves.
Construction of the solar power installations at Van der Valk Volendam, Van der Valk Sassenheim, Van der Valk Gilze Rijen and Van der Valk Waalwijk will start in January.
“We are a family business and by reducing CO2 we also think about our offspring.” Steven Zeeuw van der Laan, Van der Valk Hotels
“Of course we are very proud to be able to supply the largest hotel chain in the Netherlands with solar energy. We already know the hotel formula from the excellent quality, price and guest experience; taking responsibility for climate and the environment fits in well with this. We are really looking forward to letting the toucan fly on solar energy.” Ron Schaafsma, Head of Sales, Ecorus Business
