ChinachemGroup first to introduce "Enertainer" to promote clean energy use onconstruction sites.
Enertainer is the first purpose-built construction energy storagesystem in the world. It has been developed by Ampd Energy, an incubatee of HongKong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP). Compared with dieselgenerators, Enertainer is smaller in size, nearly silent, will not emit dark smokefrom burning diesel, and can reduce carbon emissions by up to 85% or up to 200tonnes per year. It can effectively lessen the air pollution -- the equivalent toremoving 200 to 400 passenger cars from theroad, noise and fire risk caused by diesel generators on construction sites.
