LONGi marks World Earth Day with the solar industry’s first tailor-made metro train – EQ Mag Pro
XI’AN, China : LONGi Green Energy Technology has created the industry’s first tailor-made metro train in Xi’an, capital of northwest China’s Shaanxi Province and home to the company’s headquarters.
The LONGi sponsored concept was developed to mark World Earth Day, established 53 years ago with the objective of raising global awareness of the importance of environmental protection and a low-carbon lifestyle, and involved the painting of carriages of a train operating on Xi’an’s metro network, enabling passengers to enjoy an immersive experience of a renewable city and village, showcasing scenarios for the future widespread application of sustainable and renewable energy.
“LONGi’s aim is to give the public a better understanding of the importance of carbon emission reduction and the significance of green energy in mitigating the effects of climate change,” explained George Huo, General Manager of the LONGi Group’s Brand Department. The train will continue to run on Xi’an’s Metro Line 2 for one month.
