Syncro System has taken another step forward in its plans to reduce dependency on non-renewable energy sources and minimise environmental impact. In recent weeks, another sixty 545 Wp photovoltaic panels have been installed on the roof of the factory in Via Portile, Cassola, further expanding the system that has taken shape in the last few years, and that already produces 320 kWp.
The original system, installed in 2016, consisted of 556 panels. Another 504 were added in 2018. 2021 saw the installation of a further 52 panels, followed by 60 in 2022. The total for 2022 is therefore 1172 panels, giving a total power output of 352.70 kWp.
Seen from above, the roof of Syncro’s Cassola production plant is a vast array of panels oriented to capture the rays of the sun and transform them into DC electrical energy. This is converted into an AC supply by inverters and distributed throughout the plant to power the machines that produce Syncro van racking elements.
With this latest expansion, it is estimated that Syncro’s rooftop photovoltaic system will produce around 390,000 kWh per annum, leading to a saving in emissions of 207,000 kg of CO2.
As Luca Comunello, president of the Syncro System Group, explains, “Our plans are ambitious, so we are implementing them in small steps. Thanks to this latest expansion, we shall achieve an energy self-sufficiency of 45%.”
For a company whose internal organisation is based on the KAIZEN philosophy of continuous improvement, it has been a natural process to adopt varied solutions to reduce impact on the environment. In addition to increasing the self-production of electrical energy over the years, Syncro System has also implemented a series of actions that have significantly reduced energy consumption, including:
