Cemex Croatia to install solar plants with EU funding

Cemex Croatia has won contracts to install solar power plants at three of its facilities, co-financed by the EU’s Modernisation Fund. The company will build new solar plants at Sv. Juraj and Sv. Kajo cement plants in Kaštel Sućurac and Solin, respectively, and at the Podsused production facility in Zagreb. The total investment is valued at €5m.

The solar power plants, with a combined capacity of 6.34MW, will be installed on the roofs of these facilities. The Sv. Juraj plant will receive a 3.79MW system worth €3m, the Sv. Kajo plant a 2.14MW system valued at €1.7m, and the Podsused facility a 0.41MW system costing about €318,000. The EU’s Modernisation Fund will cover 60% of the costs for the Sv. Juraj and Sv. Kajo projects and 50% for the Podsused project.

“The savings that these measures will bring to us in terms of energy consumption will increase the efficiency of our production and reduce emissions from our operations. These are just some of the projects we are planning to achieve our climate goals” said Marijan Zekić, Cemex Croatia’s project and quality assurance manager.
