In their efforts to lead sustainable initiatives, The Westin & Le Meridien City Centre Bahrain became the first two hotels in the Kingdom to install Wind Turbines and 96 electric solar panels.
The 20 wind turbines individually generate 3 KW of electricity. Guided by Marriott’s sustainability and social impact goals, the initiative is part of the commitment to sustainable operations and creating a positive impact across their hotels.
As of August 2022, The Westin generated 19,367.00 KW while Le Meridien generated 21,318.00 KW which collectively, could run a car for 117,856 km and save 478 trees!
Sammy Gani, Complex General Manager for The Westin City Centre Bahrain and Le Meridien City Centre Bahrain said, “We are proud to be the first hotel in Bahrain to install wind turbines in the hotel that generate enough electricity to run our public areas lighting thus reducing our carbon footprint.”
Zakour Moussa, Complex Chief Engineer for The Westin City Centre Bahrain and Le Meridien City Centre Bahrain added, “Electricity generated from these ten turbines is enough to light up all public areas at The Westin & Le Meridien City Centre Bahrain.
