Exolum has commissioned two new photovoltaic projects for its own energy consumption which will enable the company to reduce its emissions and energy costs.

One of these photovoltaic facilities has been built in Exolum’s plant located in Algeciras, Spain. The project consists of three phases. Once completed, it will produce useful power for self-consumption of over 220 MWh, ensuring the supply of 100% renewable energy equivalent to approximately 14% of the total power consumed at the facility. Electricity consumption is the main source of Exolum’s emissions and energy supply from this new renewable solar energy plant will prevent the release of approximately 27 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere every year. The final phase for the construction of the photovoltaic project at Algeciras is expected to be completed during the last quarter of 2023.

Exolum is also carrying out the extension of its photovoltaic plant in Barcelona, which will have a final power for self-consumption of 96.63 MWh. The project covers an area of 186 m2 and will prevent the emission of over 13 tonnes of CO2.

Both projects are part of the actions carried out within the reference framework of Good Environmental Practices at Algeciras and Barcelona Ports.

Likewise, the construction of a new photovoltaic plant for self-consumption is planned at Exolum’s facility in Huelva, in addition to two new solar plants at its facilities in Poblete and Arahal. These projects will make it possible to produce approximately 10% of the company’s total energy consumption in Spain with solar energy.
