VILLARTA DE SAN JUAN, SPAIN — Symaga has installed a photovoltaic solar energy plant to power its factory in Villarta de San Juan, Spain. It is another step in the company’s commitment to sustainability, which started in 2018 with the Environmental Management System ISO 14001.
Solar panels are installed on one of the building’s covers to generate green energy. The first phase will supply 25% of total energy consumed by Symaga with the goal of reaching 100% in the second phase.
Within Symaga’s Continuous Improvement for Manufacturing Plan, the entrance to the plant has been reorganized at a logistical level, improving the internal traffic of trucks and vehicles and parking spaces, for over 3,500 trucks that come and go every year within the factory.
Two buildings have been rebuilt, the first to control the entry and exit of vehicles, with a room to give occupational risk prevention to all visitors and the second building with a new training and meeting room for production team.
“The reduction of energy costs and logistics improvement, in the end, increase efficiency and competitiveness of our company and our silos, and reinforce the company's commitment to reduce the environmental footprint,” Symaga said.
