Within the framework of the Actiu Technological Park Opening Schedule, Actiu had last 28th of November the official visit of the Right Honourable President of Valencia Region, Mr. Francisco Camps Ortiz, who inaugurated the Actiu photovoltaic plant.

In his speech, President Camps emphasized that these projects represents the future, innovation, the ability to be adapted, culture and modernity. He thanked all business men as Vicente Berbegal that work every day for a better future for all people in the place where their companies are based. He also praised this project because of the economical moment we are now.

7milions kWh pure energy
Actiu Photovoltaic plant, will be the largest photovoltaic plant in Europe on an Industrial floor. It will start working at the end fo this year. The photovoltaic cells are last generation with high efficiency and able to produce 70% more than the standard cells.

First phase of the photovoltaic plant is already working. It is "nowadays an example of modernity, energetic efficiency and sustainability" said President Camps last 28th of November.

The solar plant is being very special in the Actiu Technological Park project for several reasons: first, the size of the plant, about 45.000 m2; second, the last generation technology and high output. And the last reason, the plant is perfectly integrated in the building architecture. The last detail has been a huge design and investment effort, but it has also been an aesthetics solution very interesting for the project. Actiu photovoltaic plant will produce 7.000.000 kwh/year, 6 times over the Actiu consume. The surplus could cover consume of a city of 5.000 inhabitants. The production of this clean energy will avoid emitting 8.250 tones of CO2 to the atmosphere. It would be necessary 412.000 trees to absorb these CO2.
