WE PRODUCE OUR CERAMICS IN A MORE SUSTAINABLE WAY

  • We have installed in our factory in Vila-Real, Castell?n 600 solar modules, about 1400 square metres, on a relevant part of the roof.
  • The installation will allow us to save 15% of its electricity consumption every year and avoid the emission into the atmosphere of more than 100 tonnes of CO2 per year, thus supporting the ecological transition of the country.

We are committed to energy self-consumption: more than 600 photovoltaic modules have been installed on a significant part of the roof of our production plant in Vila-Real (around 1,400 m2).

We have installed more than 600 photovoltaic modules on a significant part of the roof of our production plant in Vila-Real (around 1,400 m2).

The installation was completed and commissioned in just four months and will allow us to have a power of 285kWp and an annual production of 410 MWh. Thanks to the fact that the production processes are continuous, we will be able to take advantage of more than 90% of the production of this installation, so it will be self-consumed and will allow us to save up to 15% of its electricity consumption.

This energy saving is linked to our commitment to environmental protection and thanks to the leap to self-consumption, we will be able to reduce our carbon footprint by about 102 tonnes of CO2/year, thus walking in our own decarbonisation process. This translates into the positive effect that 13667 new trees could have on air quality or avoid 135.7 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.

We are located in the heart of the ceramic fabric of Castell?n, one of the areas with the most intense energy consumption at a national level due to the strategic weight of the ceramic industry and with more than 300 days of sunshine a year, a perfect combination for the self-consumption formula.

Self-consumption, together with other energy efficiency initiatives, is one of the key points to tackle decarbonisation in the household and productive sectors.
