Efacec finalized another project for The Navigator Company to carry out the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of a solar photovoltaic power plant under the self-consumption regime, renewing a successful partnership that began in 2016.
With an installed capacity of 1.89 MW, the project, finalized this month, promoted the installation of 4,086 solar panels on around 4,000 m2 on the ground, which started producing around 3,200,000 kWh/year of renewable energy to be self-consumed at one of The Navigator Company’s Setúbal mills.
This energy production is equivalent to the consumption of 1,327 electric cars travelling 20,000 kilometers in a year and avoiding the emission of 1,187 tons of CO2.
The Navigator Company, an integrated producer of forestry, pulp, paper, tissue, sustainable packaging solutions and bioenergy, has stepped up its commitment to solar energy. To date, the Company has completed five projects in the field of self-consumption solar photovoltaic power, with investment totaling 4.7 million euros. The Navigator Company has thus reaffirmed its commitment to bringing forward by 15 years, in line with national and European targets, the carbon neutrality of its industrial complexes, which will allow it to have all its mills carbon neutral by 2035 and to achieve, by that date, a reduction of 86% in its CO2 emissions.
