Argenta Cerámica installs more than 92,000 square metres of photovoltaic panels

The Spanish ceramic tile producer is continuing its process of decarbonisation by installing photovoltaic systems at its five production facilities.

Argenta Cerámica, a leading Spanish ceramic tile manufacturer based in Villareal (Castellón), recently took a step forward in its ambitious decarbonisation plan with the installation of powerful photovoltaic generation plants at its five production facilities in Onda, Vilafamés and Vall d’Alba.

Confirming its goal of reaching a peak power of 19.2 MWp and an annual generation capacity of 26,727 MWh, Argenta has completed a photovoltaic array comprising a total of 35,218 modules occupying a total area of 92,020 square metres across its various sites.

The photovoltaic system will cover 26% of the company’s electricity consumption, thereby cutting costs by 29% and reducing indirect CO2 emissions by 6,922 tonnes/year.

The project is part of Argenta’s environmental improvement policy, which already includes kiln heat recovery systems, wastewater and ceramic sludge recycling solutions and continuous investments in high-efficiency technologies.
