Norvento, specialists in renewable technologies and solutions, has successfully completed the deployment of a 124 kWp power self-consumption photovoltaic installation on top of the K storage hangar inside the MB92 Barcelona facilities.
The installation will be able to immediately contribute to the energy demand within the facilities and accompany the 100% renewable energy sources already supplied on-site.
After the successful completion of the installation works, work is now underway on the development of a control panel that will allow the MB92 team to monitor the generation of photovoltaic energy produced in real time.
Marc Hervás, MB92 Barcelona Sustainability Coordinator, stated that “We have made a great effort in energy transition in recent years, the greatest example being the electrification of the shipyard. The next natural step was for us to develop our own renewable energy self-consumption facility and I am looking forward to seeing how this project progresses”.
Luis Jiménez, head of Norvento’s Photovoltaic and Self-consumption Department, highlights that “we are happy to help MB92 move towards a self-sufficient model based on renewable sources as part of its strategy and commitment to minimise its environmental footprint. MB92 is a benchmark in its sector and, without a doubt, through its firm commitment to clean generation sources, also is in sustainability”.
Damià Calvet, President of the Port of Barcelona, added “the energy transition that MB92 is leading at its facilities is fully aligned with the Port of Barcelona’s strategy to make port activity carbon neutral. Both the electrification of the shipyard and the installation of renewable energy sources are projects that we are also working on and that we will soon see bear fruit in other parts of the port area”.
