Reaffirming its commitment to sustainable practices, Peleman Industries is now utilising the power of the largest industrial battery of its kind in Belgium. 

Having long been at the forefront of green manufacturing, Peleman Industries teamed up with Eneco, Alfen and Next Kraftwerke to install a battery at the company’s premises in Puurs, Belgium, to utilise the energy generated by the nearby wind turbines. 
The newly installed 12m long battery, which charges itself when production is higher than consumption to help counterbalance possible electricity shortages, has a capacity of 2MW / 2MWh, which is equivalent to the daily electricity consumption of 200 households.

 


“By harvesting green power and utilising the battery, we aim to reduce the company’s consumption from the electricity grid by at least 10 percent,” commented Esmeralda Peleman, CEO, Peleman Industries NV, expressing pride in being the first company in the country to have such a battery at its premises.


The battery was officially inaugurated by Bart Tommelein, minister of finance, budget and energy, Flanders, Belgium; Koen van den Heuvel, major, Puurs municipality, and Esmeralda Peleman, CEO, Peleman Industries N.V, in the presence of dignitaries, partners and representatives of the media.


The inauguration of the project represents a significant step towards Peleman Industries’ goal to achieve and even exceed the CO2 emission reduction targets set by the European Union, by 2020, 10 years prior to the official target date, explained Esmeralda Peleman.


In line with its corporate social responsibility initiatives, Peleman Industries installed two wind turbines on its premises in Puurs in 2011, allowing the company to cover 75 percent of its energy consumption from renewable sources. By utilising the battery, the company aims to achieve a further increase of 10 percent in this regard, cementing Peleman Industries’ position as a trailblazer in innovation and green practices.
