Solar panels for a sustainable energy
The innovative and green spirits of our company also merge together in the choice of eco-friendly technologies which have zero environmental impact and help reducing the waste of natural resources for corporate buildings as well. In particular, Rulmeca Group is gradually converting to the use of alternative energy sources through the installation of solar panels, the most common systems of natural, clean and renewable energy production. Melco, part of Rulmeca Group, managed to fulfil the power requirements of Germiston factory in South Africa through the installation of 682 solar panels equal to 1500m² and a power of 250kW AC at peak. Not only that. Even the Italian company Rulli Rulmeca S.p.a., which had been previously equipped with solar panels to partially cover the factory, decided to expand the existing plant. Now, the factory in Almè, Bergamo, has 1392 solar panels covering 7350m2 and providing a total power of 396,36kW. The collected data so far and the estimated data for this year about total energy consumption and self-produced energy support the new goal of the company of further increasing the available surface with solar panels.
