Engie and Solarge place circular solar installation at Sabic Genk

Sustainable energy

Belgium – Engie, Solarge and Sabic are joining forces for a 2.4 MW solar installation at Sabic’s site in Genk. The solar panels produced by Solarge in the Netherlands are 100% recyclable and are made of Sabic PP compound (polypropylene) which makes them weigh much less than traditional solar panels.

Engie tested the panels intensively in its laboratory and will take care of the installation, financing and maintenance of the panels.

The installation has about 4,700 panels that, with a total capacity of 2.4 MWp, produce an average of 2,000 MWh of green and local electricity per year. Sabic will use 97% of the electricity produced itself and can thus cover about 5% of the local energy needs of its site in Genk. Thanks to the solar panels, an emission of 800 tons of CO2 per year will be avoided.
