The company says Gabriel-Chemie is showing how to successfully combine plastics with sustainability, at the same time sending out a clear signal for climate and environmental protection.
The photovoltaic installation set up on the roofs of the production and warehouse buildings is intended to be used to supply power to the production facilities and office buildings. 2,671 ultra-modern photovoltaic panels have been installed across an area of around 4,487 square meters to produce energy independently.
The newly established photovoltaic installation is being co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and will achieve a nominal power output of around 881 kWp (kilowatt peak).
The solar panels will generate up to 903,500 kilowatt-hours of clean energy for Gabriel-Chemie every year.
Due to this cleaner energy production solution, the masterbatch producer has the option of feeding energy into the grid at the weekends and using it to supply energy to the production building as required at other times.
