CTPark Amsterdam City most sustainable building of the Netherlands

As of 2025, only electric transport will be permitted to supply Amsterdam’s city center. Recognizing this, CTP has turned this sustainability obligation into a business opportunity by developing Amsterdam's most sustainable logistics center. Koolen Industries is proud to be CTP’s dedicated partner for the total energy system. 


From design to realization and ongoing optimization, we are working together on an energy system that not only works as efficiently as possible but is also a business model in itself.

Smart Grid powers Albert Heijns emission-free transport

The annual Albert Heijn Transport Days at the iconic TT Circuit in Assen were dedicated to zero-emission transportation. Targeting carriers and suppliers, the event showcased the possibilities for transitioning to electric transport.


Apart from procuring electric trucks, having a robust charging infrastructure and adequate power supply for multiple trucks was vital. 


SmartGrid, an energy storage systems provider for Albert Heijn's new distribution center, supplied systems for a charging hub capable of servicing over 25 trucks at the event.


"SmartGrid's battery systems made it possible to power more than 25 electric trucks at TT Assen, despite the limited power connection, ensuring the success of the Albert Heijn Transport Days." Alannah van 't Hoenderdaal, Manager Transport Expertise, Albert Heijn.

The Zilvermeeuw Z9: the Most Sustainable Event Ship in the Netherlands with Super B Lithium Batteries

The Zilvermeeuw Z9 is the first fully electric, sustainable party boat in the Netherlands. This vessel primarily navigates through the National Park de Biesbosch in the Netherlands, making emission-free navigation especially crucial. An added advantage is its remarkably quiet operation, thanks to the electric motor.


Equipped with 324 Nomia lithium batteries from Super B, the party boat boasts a total capacity of over 1.4 MWh, enabling approximately 8 hours of navigation. Overnight, the boat is extensively recharged at the quay to ensure full energy reserves for the following day.


Originally designed to operate on hydrogen, the Z9 transitioned to batteries, partly due to complex regulations. Super B's lithium iron phosphate batteries perfectly aligned with Zilvermeeuw's safety and sustainability principles after a thorough evaluation of eight suppliers.


Super B's batteries guarantee zero emissions and offer an ultra-modern, quiet, and environmentally conscious solution. The Z9 sets a new benchmark for maritime sustainability, promising a green future for both people and the environment."

Solar Innovation for Historic Properties

Great news for owners of historical buildings in the Netherlands. The guidelines for installing solar panels have been eased in 2023.


"I knew that NovaVolt installed solar power systems on challenging roofs. When I heard they have their own roofers, the choice became even easier. I had one contact throughout the entire process," said the owner of this stunning property in Etten-Leur.


At this location, NovaVolt installed a 22-panel solar power system. They developed a specialized plan suitable for the bitumen roof that also gained approval from the Architecture Review Board. This system not only meets today's energy needs but also anticipates future demands. The customer chose a system that can be expanded limitlessly, such as with a charging station or energy storage.


NovaVolt's team specializes in installing solar panels on unique roofs, ensuring no roof is left uncovered in the Netherlands' energy transition.

Realization of biggest Agri-PV park in the Netherlands

Agriculture and solar farms - how do you make it work? The solar park in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, is a prime example! The Agri-Photovoltaic (Agri-PV) project uses an agricultural area for two things: While shade crops can be grown on the ground, electricity is produced at the same time using solar energy. An additional benefit of the panels is that they can protect the plants against hail, frost, and drought damage.


Over the past 2 years, we've collaborated with numerous partners and stakeholders on the realization of our Agri-PV Energy Park Bijsterhuizen.


Project specifications:

  • 32,211 solar panels installed

  • With a table height of just under 2.5 meters and 1.05 meters between rows, the park can be completely cultivated

  • In the first year, approximately 18.7 GWh of solar energy is generated

Greeniuz Provides Sustainable Heat and Comfort for Office Employees in Barendrecht

The entrepreneur of an office building in Barendrecht sought a comfortable electric primary heating solution for their premises. The existing solar panel installation already catered to the power supply for the current electric air conditioning heating. However, employees found this warmth uncomfortable.


Greeniuz, a producer and supplier of high-quality, high-efficiency infrared heat panels, equipped the premises with 100 heat panels (60x60cm) in the existing suspended ceilings, along with an additional 14 heat panels (60x90cm) in the restaurant area. The entire installation was completed within 3.5 days.


Project Specifications:

  • Year Built: 2009

  • Office Space: 550 m2

  • Total Installed Capacity: 24,000 W

  • Estimated Energy Consumption: 19,000 kWh

  • Investment: € 45,000.00

  • Payback time: 5.9 years


The client expresses immense satisfaction with the new system. Employees experience comfortable warmth, the company optimizes its self-generated energy, resulting in cost savings and a reduction in CO2 emissions - a triple win!

Battolyser systems proves industrial operation of Battolyser together with RWE

In May Battolyser System installed their industrial demonstration Battolyser unit at RWE Magnum powerplant in the Eemshaven. The system has been tested to prove it could switch on and off safely.


Conventional electrolysers cannot switch on and off, as they create explosive gas crossover mixtures and damage the electrodes due to reversed potentials. A Battolyser does not have these issues, as it holds charged electrodes, allowing it to be operated like a battery.


Conventional electrolysers produce black hydrogen when there is not enough sun or wind energy.  A Battolyser can switch off or sell back to the grid at these times. Good for the business case, grid congestion and the environment!
