Westeria impresses with significant savings through sustainable measures!

Sustainability is a top priority at Westeria. As a company, we are aware of our responsibility to the environment. That is why we have thoroughly examined how we can contribute to reducing harmful impacts. One of our key focuses is on sustainable energy generation. Through targeted measures and investments, we have achieved substantial savings and made our production more environmentally friendly in recent years

In November 2022, we launched a photovoltaic system and now it’s time for an initial assessment. Our PV installation covers the entire roof of our company. Given the global warming challenge, solar energy offers a genuine alternative to conventional energy production by significantly reducing CO2 emissions. Since the installation of our PV system, we have already saved an impressive 159 metric tons of CO² by generating 90% of our energy on-site. It’s a significant step towards a sustainable future.

However, our aim is to reduce energy consumption across the board. We implement efficient measures such as using timers to reliably switch off all screens in the company at the end of the workday or employing a new laser for metal processing that operates much more energy efficiently compared to the previous standard. Additionally, we have achieved a 15% reduction in natural gas usage through compressor retrofitting and the utilization of a geothermal heat pump for our newly constructed office spaces in 2021. But that’s not all – in the future, we plan to utilize the waste heat from our compressors to heat the drying chamber in our painting line.

Thanks to these renewable solutions and a well-thought-out concept, we have achieved substantial savings over the past four years. These savings not only contribute significantly to environmental protection but also demonstrate that as a company, we can play a crucial role. We take pride in achieving a positive impact through these innovations while simultaneously producing in an eco-friendly manner.

With our commitment to renewable energy and energy efficiency, we aim to contribute to a more sustainable future. Together, we can make a difference and protect the environment.
