Univergy Solar develops and builds a 201.11kWp Solar Self-consumption project for Toro Equipment in Villavaquerín (Valladolid).
The project called Toro Equipment is intended to provide clean energy in the manufacture of water treatment equipment, with an installed capacity of more than 200 kWp.
The plant will be installed in Villavaquerín (Valladolid) and is scheduled to start operations in January 2022, making it a benchmark project for the industry in Castilla y León.
Madrid, Valladolid, December 21, 2021 – The Spanish-Japanese company Univergy Solar and Toro Equipment are developing an industrial solar self-consumption project for a clean energy plant with an operating capacity of more than 200 kWp. The facility will be used to manufacture equipment for wastewater, industrial and urban water treatment and sludge treatment in the town of Villavaquerín (Valladolid), and will avoid the emission of more than 127 Tm of CO2 per year.
The plant will have 450 photovoltaic panels and is scheduled to start operating in January 2022. The project investment will amount to 142,000 euros, with a payback period of six and a half years. The expected savings in energy costs will be more than 26,000 euros per year, making it the largest self-consumption installation in the area.
Francisco Conesa, director of Univergy’s Self-consumption division, pointed out that “the Toro Equipment industrial solar self-consumption project in Villavaquerín will be a benchmark for clean energy for all industries and companies in the Castilla y León region. This project will be an example and an important incentive for companies to adapt to the ecological transition by directly involving Toro Equipment”.
For his part, Juan Felipe Pérez, commercial director of Self-consumption of Univergy, has remarked that “we have had to expand the offices of our delegation in Valladolid due to the strong growth and demand that we are having for the development of new projects”. And he adds “Toro Equipment is a leading company in its sector and has historically proven to be deeply aware of this issue in all its production processes”.
This installation, like all those developed by Univergy Solar, will have EKOenergy certification, which internationally guarantees that the energy used for industrial processes comes from power plants with minimal impact on the environment and diversity.
Univergy Solar expects to end 2021 with the installation of more than 250 industrial and residential solar self-consumption projects in Spain, which represents an increase of 50% over the previous year, and which have led to a significant reduction in CO2 emissions of its customers.
Univergy Solar has more than 20 years of international experience and specializes in the development, construction and operation of solar and wind projects, including storage and green hydrogen solutions, and self-consumption in its multiple residential, industrial and agricultural applications.
