Not only are we switching to sources of renewable energy, investing in photovoltaic panels allows VGT to generate electricity from renewable energy. Malta is blessed with sunny Mediterranean climate which makes photovoltaic panels an ideal candidate to harness the abundant sunlight. VGT operates 2 large cargo shed of around 9,000sqm at Deep Water Quay (DWQ) and although the roof slope and direction is not the perfect angle in terms of sun facing, the PV panels on the roof will still get significant amount of sun.
