Symaga installs solar energy generation plants at factory

Global Mining Review,
The installation of a photovoltaic solar energy generation plant to power Symaga’s factory in Villarta de San Juan is one more step in its commitment to sustainability and respect for the environment, which the company already consolidated in 2018, with Environmental Management System ISO 14001.
One of the covers of the company’s buildings has been used to install a system of solar panels that will generate green energy. This first phase will supply 25% of the total energy consumed in Symaga Group, aiming for 100% in the second phase.
Within Symaga’s Continuous Improvement for Manufacturing Plan, the entrance to the plant has been reorganised at a logistical level, improving the internal traffic of trucks and vehicles and parking spaces, for over 3500 trucks that come and go every year within our factory.
Two buildings have been rebuilt; the first to control the entry and exit of vehicles, with a room to give occupational risk prevention to all visitors and the second building with a new training and meeting room for production team.
Symaga Group maintains its philosophy of continuous improvement. The reduction of energy costs and logistics improvement, in the end, increase efficiency and competitiveness of the company and its silos, and reinforce the commitment to reduce the environmental footprint.
