MBO uses its own electricity from photovoltaics

The new photovoltaic system supplies up to 2/3 of the electricity needed at MBO.

MBO, the technology specialist for folding machines and robots for print finishing, has greatly strengthened its commitment to sustainability and climate protection in recent years. The latest project is a photovoltaic system on the flat roof of the main site in Oppenweiler near Stuttgart.

Construction of the system was recommended to MBO as part of an energy audit. The go-ahead for planning was granted in summer 2019. MBO Head of R & D Sebastian König is pleased with the smooth process: “We were fortunately not affected by the disrupted supply chains and had no problem procuring the photovoltaic elements. Co-operation with the authorities also went smoothly, so we stayed on schedule”. As a side note, the flat roof has always been covered with vegetation. It was possible to preserve the green space in spite of the construction of the photovoltaic system, meaning many useful insects can continue to find food there. On sunny days, the system produces 2/3 of the electricity needed at the factory. It is also used to charge the company’s electric cars. MBO is making a valuable contribution to CO2 savings in this way.
