EPTA’S MODEL OF EFFICIENCY: THE GROUP INSTALLS A PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEM AT THE SOLESINO PRODUCTION SITE

24/11/2020

Improve efficiency, reduce consumption and protect resources, in compliance with the principles of the Circular Economy, is a priority objective for the Epta Group. The recent technological investments to install a cutting-edge photovoltaic system at the production site of Solesino (PD), historic headquarters of the Eurocryor brand, are tangible evidence of the company’s desire to achieve the highest standards of excellence, eliminating waste. This initiative is part of a larger project that the Group is conducting with the introduction of technologies and sharing of best practice among all factories.

Thanks to 208 kW power, the energy produced by the solar panels installed will provide 35% of total site requirement, reducing CO2 emissions by 140 t/year. Electricity is supplied by renewable sources following several important projects to reduce the carbon footprint in 2019, such as the replacement of halogen lamps with latest-generation LED and of traditional boilers with new condensation models. Finally, to confirm the commitment of the Company in promoting the protection of the territory and sustainable growth, the introduction of a fleet of electrical vehicles is expected for business mobility and charging stations in the car park for electric or hybrid cars.
