Detail Inox Maroc is a leading Moroccan company specialized in the decoiling and sawing of sheet metal and the manufacture of drip tape for irrigation systems. The company is positioned as a top supplier on the local market given its expertise and use of latest technologies. Detail INOX’s new strategy is to expand its drip tape production capacity by acquiring the best available technology (BAT) production equipment.

As part of its development strategy, Detail INOX Maroc has decided to strengthen its capacities as part of a global investment programme. Thus, the company has decided to acquire new machines (model 2021 of the LIT106) which allows a threefold increase in production speed compared to the previous generations available on the market, while maintaining optimal quality. For this new investment, the company called on the Green Value Chain team to benefit from the programme’s financing and technical assistance.

This project aims to increase its production capacity in order to properly support the development of its activities as well as the modernization and reinforcement of its production tools in order to reduce its energy consumption.

This investment of more than 1,000,000 euros has generated electrical energy savings of 27%, i.e. 63.43 MWh/year, as well as a reduction in GHG emissions of 36.28 T CO2e compared to the baseline. This installation has improved the company
