Vidrala has started the commissioning of its Castellar Vidrio photovoltaic plant at its factory located in Castellar del Vallés, Barcelona.

This includes the energisation of new installations at the factory.

In this way, Vidrala completes the construction project of its photovoltaic self-consumption plant that began in March.

The new photovoltaic plant at Castellar Vidrio has the capacity to produce approximately 8,000 MWh of energy per year.

This will mean the reduction of more than 2,000 tons of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere per year.

The new plant has more than 1,900 photovoltaic modules with a power of up to 6 MWp.

This project is part of the decarbonisation and energy efficiency plan implemented by the Vidrala Group, with the aim of reducing dependence on fossil energy, promoting self-consumption and improving energy efficiency at a global level.

This project of self-consumption, that Vidrala promotes with Norvento Enerxía, adds to the one implemented by the company in 2022 at the Crisnova plant, located in Caudete, Albacete.

The 12 MW installation at the Crisnova plant has allowed the company to reduce the annual emission of around 12,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
