ENGIE started the construction of a photovoltaic park for the Saint-Gobain factory
Saint-Gobain and ENGIE Romania announce the start of the construction of the largest on-site photovoltaic park in Romania, according to an ENGIE press release. Located on the land of the Saint-Gobain glass factory in Călărași, on an area of 14 hectares, the photovoltaic panel system will be intended for the production of renewable energy within the industrial site, the resulting production will be used 100 percent for self-consumption. The project has an installed capacity of 8.6 MWp.
“We are delighted to meet the decarbonisation needs of our partner Saint-Gobain and thank them for their trust in implementing this key project. Decentralized energy production solutions are increasingly becoming a necessity for businesses that want to stay competitive by reducing energy costs, but also sustainable by limiting CO2 emissions," said Nicolas Richard, Vice President of ENGIE Romania, Responsible for the Energy Solutions Division.
