New insensiv solar farm installed
500m² plant is expected to generate 70 MWh of energy per year
Back in 2017, we moved into our new company headquarters in the “Auf dem Esch” industrial park in Bielefeld-Dornberg, Germany. Since then, we have been working here on the latest technologies for deposit return schemes and many other exciting innovations based on intelligent camera systems.
In the past, however, the insensiv headquarters was used as a turbine factory. That’s why we’ve been working on the modification and modernization of the building almost constantly since we moved in, in order to adapt it perfectly to our needs. Of course, the focus is also on keeping the impact on the environment as low as possible. That’s why the most recent renovation projects have focused on optimizing the energy balance and expanding the use of renewable energy.
Last year, one of the largest and most important modification projects was completed – the installation of the company’s own solar farm on the factory roof. This initially required a roof renovation to increase the possible load-bearing capacity. The plant, which is a good 500m² in size, now consists of a total of 213 modules and is expected to generate approx. 70 MWh of energy a year with up to 80 kW peak. This corresponds to a saving of approximately 31.1 tons of CO² per year and thus is a major step for us in our sustainability efforts.
At this point, we would once again like to thank Paul Bauder GmbH & Co. KG and roofer Fritz Jünemann, who made the realization of this project possible. We are proud to finally be able to use our roof even more efficiently.
