DENSO Barcelona in Sant Fruitos de Bages, the biggest manufacturing facility of electronic components in Europe, has hired the Catalan company INNOVER to design and install one of the most powerful self-consumption photovoltaic systems with zero injection* at its facility. It is rated 252 kWp (kilowatt peak) and is one of the biggest of its kind in Spain. This new system is aiming to use all the generated solar energy for the production at its own facility.
The photovoltaic system is made up of one thousand 260-Watt solar modules and was installed on 5,000 square meters of the renovated roof. The company will save nearly 400,000 kWh per year and reduce 100 tons of CO2. With this new environmental investment, one out of three ECU’s (Engine Control Unit) produced by DENSO Barcelona currently is made with clean electricity.
* A zero injection system guarantees that all energy produced by solar panels is consumed in the facility itself, injecting 0 kW to the external electrical net.
