Orizon to run on 100% renewable energy
As of April 2022, the company will begin a transition towards the use of renewable energies in its plants. This will be possible thanks to an agreement with EMOAC, a subsidiary of Copec and a leading company in Integral Energy Intelligence, which will provide Orizon with electricity supply for a period of at least four years.
The deployment will begin with the change of connection at its production center in Coquimbo and then continue with the company’s three facilities in Coronel, expected to take place between January 2023 and the same month of 2024. In this way, the aim is to ensure that all consumption is generated by wind, solar and geothermal energy, among others.
Regarding this new milestone, Cristián Larraín, Orizon’s Commercial and Sustainability Manager, said: “One of our objectives is that sustainability is always at the center of our operation and is something transversal in the way we work. Moving towards 100% renewable energy is the result of long work and an analysis of how we can implement concrete changes in a responsible way in pursuit of our commitment to care for the environment”.
