Installation of a photovoltaic solar power plant
Founded in 1994, the MMEP ALMA company designs and markets complete ranges of water connections, water supply and sanitation such as water meters, fittings and accessories for very diversified sectors of activity: industry, construction, irrigation, administration and local communities.
MMEP intends to position itself as a first-class industrial player. To do this, the company has acquired specialized technology in the manufacture of plastic tubes (PVC and HDPE) and accessories intended for the construction of sewerage networks. Conscious and concerned about environmental problems, MMEP ALMA decided to invest in a photovoltaic solar power plant.
The photovoltaic solar power plant will be installed on the roof of the MMEP Alma industrial site. This type of installation, called “solar self-consumption”, cover s part of the site’s electricity needs. Thanks to this new installation, the electrical equipment will operate with 2 sources of electricity, the public electricity grid and the photovoltaic generator, priority being automatically given to solar kWh. The total power of the photovoltaic installation is 772.2 KWp.
The implementation of this project, financed by Bank of Africa, should enable an energy saving of 1,090 MWh/year. In addition, the company should be able to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 621.86 t CO2eq each year, which contributes to mitigating the negative effects of industrial and human activity on the climate.
