September 13 (Renewables Now) - French home appliances and cookware manufacturer SEB SA (EPA:SK) has inaugurated a 1.4-MWp solar farm at its factory in Rionegro, Colombia, the company announced on social media channels last week.
The project was delivered by another French firm, energy solutions company GreenYellow, which put up close to 4,000 solar panels at the site.
The ground-mounted arrays are expected to generate about 1,937 MWh per year, GreenYellow added in a separate post. This amount of output will help the Rionegro factory cover around 9% of its electricity needs will self-generated solar power, the firm said.
