VAREL, Germany, June 29, 2010 (Press Release) -As a further step towards more independence in energy supplies Papier- und Kartonfabrik Varel group currently installs a photovoltaic solar plant on roofs of warehouses no. 5 and 6.

The technical capacity of this solar plant is 998 kWp, installed on a surface of approx. 18.000 square metre. Within next weeks approx. 8.300 photovoltaic-modules manufactured by Inventux will be installed in row-parallel position.

By operating our solar plant we could save about 750.000 kg CO2 per year. This is equivalent to 6.250.000 km motorway-drive with a car, which has a standardised CO2 emission of 120 g per km.

This latest project is another contribution to enlarge share of renewable energy within our companies energy mix. Two biogas engines with 1 MW electrical output each, which are fueled exclusively with biogas from our water purification plant, have already been installed in 2006.
