36 000 m² of solar panels for Kronospan plants in Spain
Kronospan is realizing one of the largest self-consumption projects in Spain.
We are relying on one of the leading companies in the Spanish electricity sector – Endesa X that is simultaneously building two photovoltaic self-consumption facilities at our plants in Burgos and Salas de los Infantes, which will have a total capacity of 7.4 MWp.
Around 16,500 PV modules have been installed over an area of 36,000 m2 - equivalent in size to five football pitches. They will generate 9,2 GWh/year of clean energy and provide a relevant part of the energy required for the production processes with a clean and renewable energy source.
Almost 100% of the output of these facilities will be consumed internally, resulting in a 5% reduction in the current electrical grid consumption.
Thanks to the commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency, we will succeed in making a qualitative leap together with Endesa X and join the energy revolution, by reducing our carbon footprint by around 3,200 tons of CO₂/year, equivalent to planting 282,000 trees/year.
