Prinovis UK invests in Solar Power

The new photovoltaic system that Prinovis UK has installed on the roof of its production facility in Liverpool’s district Speke is able to produce 1.1 megawatts of energy, which is enough to supply 85 percent of the annual power consumed by the new web-offset press Goss M-600A launched at the beginning of May.

Thanks to the solar power, Prinovis UK will be able to reduce its emissions by around 500 tons of CO2 per year. Prinovis has invested around £700,000 (approx. €800,000) in the system.

The installation of more than 4,000 solar panels adds to the energy produced by the company’s own CHP, which generates electricity with a high degree of efficiency, as well as heat and chilled water for the site. “Our environmental impact is a key consideration, and this investment forms part of an ongoing program of environmental improvements and energy-saving initiatives that also includes the replacement of standard and emergency lighting in all production areas with LED lighting,” said Richard Gray, Managing Director of Prinovis UK.
