Waverley is twinned with Mayen-Koblenz in Germany and the visit was part of an annual trip by the Landrat of Mayen-Koblenz to celebrate and reinforce the cultural, economic and social links between the two regions.
With Germany a recognised leader in the renewable energy field, Dunsfold Park was showcased to Landrat Safitg and his guests as an exemplar for the borough and UK in the field, as well as the largest employment site in Waverley. The group took a tour of the Aerodrome, which included the two megawatt Solar Farm, which has been supplying energy to businesses on the site since June 2012, and the site where an Anaerobic Digestion Plant is to be built following a successful planning application in February.
Jim McAllister, Chief Executive of Dunsfold Park Ltd, comments: "It was a pleasure to host Landrat Saftig, Councillor Gordon-Smith and their guests at Dunsfold Park. The visit was a great success and an ideal opportunity for them to see first-hand our achievements here, not only with the variety and diversity of businesses, but the renewable energy initiatives we are implementing. The feedback was very positive."
