FaitalPRO harnesses solar power
12 July 2012
Italy - The Chieve plant, in the Cremona province, is the location chosen by Faital to install the manufacturing operations of its FaitalPRO division. This modern manufacturing facility is dedicated to energy savings and reducing Faital's Carbon footprint, the company says.
Initially opened in 1978, the Chieve production plant has continuously been updated following - and at times even anticipating - technological trends, including the installation of highly automated production lines.
The Chieve plant roof presented the ideal layout and orientation for the solar panels planned for this latest project: this new power generation system was designed and built to achieve outstanding production efficiency - thus significant savings - and at the same time to continue Faital's pursuit of more "ecologically conscious operations, guaranteeing FaitalPRO's ever 'greener' signature".
Faital states that this photovoltaic system was designed to cover 40% of the internal energy requirements. From the increasingly important ecological point of view, the new system will also prevent dumping several tons of harmful CO2 into the atmosphere every year.
Flavio Naggi, Faital Pro-Audio division manager confirms: "The system's installed capacity is 199kWp with an annual estimated contribution of 210,000 kWh, equivalent to about 40% of the Chieve plant's current annual consumption."
The official data indicate a significant saving of CO2 released into the atmosphere, almost 111,000kg per year, which means sparing more than 2,000 metric tons over the next 20 years.
The system was officially activated in the last week of June 2012 and the entire installation was completed in only two months.
