French utility Engie’s Romanian subsidiary has signed a contract with the local branch of the French construction materials company Saint-Gobain to build an 8.6 MW solar plant at its factory in the southern city of Calarasi.

According to a press release published this week, the solar plant is expected to produce more than 14,000 MWh per year which will be used for self-consumption.

This will cover around 20% of the Calarasi glass manufacturing plant’s energy needs and reduce CO2 emissions by more than 2,400 tonnes per year.

The project’s value and construction timetable have not been disclosed.

Engie Romania CEO Eric Stab said in the press release that the partnership with Saint-Gobain represented another step in consolidating Engie’s expertise in offering tailor-made green solutions to their customers.

The Saint-Gobain group has pledged to reduce carbon emissions by 33% by 2030 compared to their levels in 2017, while Engie has said it plans to be carbon neutral by 2045.
