Feb 1, 2024 | Fruselva-en, News

At the end of last year, Fruselva, a company of our group, inaugurated a new megafactory in Barranquilla, Colombia. These 15,182 m2 facilities are located in the Zona Franca La Cayena. Now, together with the company Cercar Energy, more than 200 solar panels of 570W are being installed, which will produce approximately 201,600 kWh/year.

This installation of solar panels on the roof of the factory’s office building occupies an area of 750 m2, and thanks to its production, it is estimated that more than 35 tons of CO2 will no longer be emitted into the atmosphere each year.

Fruselva, committed to the environment

Fruselva is committed to sustainable development and environmental responsibility, so its new facilities have systems and processes that minimize environmental impact, are designed to carry out efficient waste management, responsible water use and the implementation of renewable energy practices for self-consumption.

The installation of photovoltaic panels at the Barranquilla plant was not the only one; this same operation has also been carried out at Fruselva’s headquarters in Europe and at different plants of our corporate group, Masergrup.

In conclusion, the installation of solar panels at Fruselva’s megafactory in Barranquilla is a firm and necessary step towards a more sustainable future. The company not only ensures efficiency and competitiveness, but also demonstrates its commitment to the preservation of the environment and the promotion of a greener economy.
