Starting today, the photovoltaic plant at the production site in Prata di Pordenone (PN) is operational. The system will enable the company’s plant to cover about 80 percent of its energy needs, with a significant reduction in CO2 emissions and a consequent saving in energy costs.
Prata di Pordenone (PN), Dec. 12, 2023 – LAST Technology S.r.l. – a company active in the field of process machinery for the pharmaceutical industry – announces that a photovoltaic system has been activated at its plant, located in Prata di Pordenone (PN), with an installed capacity of 0.5 megawatts.
The installation involved an investment of about 1.3 million euros, confirming the green and eco-sustainable orientation of the company, which, in addition to making an inherently eco-sustainable product, is now equipped with a plant capable of significantly reducing dependence on nonrenewable energy sources. In fact, the plant, once fully operational, will provide energy equal to about 80 percent of its needs.
Massimo Castellarin, President of LAST Technology S.r.l., commented, “LAST has always been attentive to compliance with ESG parameters. Our ecological sensitivity and respect for nature has led us to invest also in the generation of electricity to power the production of our plant, a project that has included an overall reorganization of the company structure starting from the production of electricity from renewable sources for self-consumption, to the replacement of more energy-consuming LPG-fueled production plants with electric-powered machines, to the reconfiguration of the air conditioning of the rooms all converted with heat pumps”.
The investment also included the efficiency upgrading of the lighting system with the installation of LED lamps, the recovery of thermal energy from the condensation water of the testing facilities, and the installation of electric columns to power the company’s vehicles, which will gradually be replaced with electric cars. The installed systems are managed by supervisory systems that monitor production and consumption in order to provide information for proper management of self-produced energy.
