İmaş Machinery, the subsidiary company of İttifak Holding in the machinery sector, completed its eco-friendly Solar Power Plant project and started production. İmaş Machinery aims to produce 1 million 300 thousand TL of energy annually with the solar energy panels with a capacity of 1780 KWp placed on the roof of its factory in Konya.
İmaş Machinery, one of Turkey's top exporting companies, completed its Rooftop Solar Power Plant (Rooftop SPP) investment that it started on 31 December 2020. With 5,394 solar energy panels with a capacity of 1780 KWp placed on the roof of the production facility of İmaş, which is located in Konya 4th Organized Industrial Zone and owns a closed area of approximately 30,000 m2, 2.413.055 kWh of electricity will be produced annually. With this investment, İmaş Machinery will be able to meet all of its annual energy needs from natural resources and sell the excess energy that may arise to a distribution company.
“We minimize carbon emissions with renewable energy”
Mustafa Özdemir, General Manager of İmaş Machinery, stated that renewable energy has become even more important today, where concerns about climate change are increasing day by day. “With the Rooftop SPP investment we made as İmaş Machinery, we make significant contributions not only to the economy of our company but also to the country's economy and nature. Together with the 1780 KWp capacity solar energy system installed in our factory, we will produce 1 million 300 thousand TL of electricity annually. In this way, besides meeting all of our annual energy needs from solar energy, we will also sell the remaining energy to distribution companies. The most important gain of the project will be to contribute to the environment by preventing the release of 1,477,833 kg of carbon dioxide gas per year with our renewable energy investment. Considering that this amount can be consumed and cleaned by only 131,621 10-year-old trees, we can see that we have made the right investment decision for our future,” Özdemir said.
