SCHIATTI promotes sustainability also in the company’s headquarters

SCHIATTI has always spoken about energy saving from the point of view of their glass processing machines, how they have achieved significant savings margins, for example by providing high-efficiency motors, using low environmental impact construction materials and much more.

The intervention SCHIATTI is talking about now has to do with an even more “proactive” attitude: the creation and use of renewable energy for their production.

SCHIATTI has recently completed the installation of a latest generation photovoltaic system at the headquarters in Seregno, MB, Italy, intended to produce electricity to meet the energy needs of the offices and the production area.

The installation is designed for an average production of 100Kw (110,000 kWh of energy per year) and is made up of 220 high-tech and high-yield modules (Sunpower Maxeon), characterized by:

  • Monocrystalline silicon structure;
  • Absence of metal grid for a greater absorption surface and better aesthetic result;
  • Copper base for greater conductivity and conversion (20 percent more) of solar energy;
  • Anti-corrosion barrier that guarantees excellent performance even after 25/30 years;
  • Higher efficiency ratio (energy produced/energy captured) than traditional panels, with consequent lower dispersion of solar energy.

Why SCHIATTI has chosen photovoltaics
The company wanted to make a substantial contribution to sustainability, understood as a virtuous circle of production. This choice is consistent with our ethical project which includes not only environmental measures, but also continuous improvements in welfare in general.

Specifically, with this project, SCHIATTI is committed to:

  • Producing clean energy that contributes to the business needs, to lighten and minimize the production impact on the environment;
  • Reducing carbon dioxide emissions and the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere;
  • Zeroing noise pollution;
  • Take an important step towards sustainable production.
