Following our policy of reducing the environmental impact of our activity, TTI ALGECIRAS has recently signed a collaboration agreement with the Spanish energy services company ENERTIKA to carry out an ambitious plan to improve the energy efficiency of our facilities, which will allow us to drastically reduce our electricity consumption and self-generate part of our demand with green energy.
The first phase of the project will consist of replacing more than 3,900 light points corresponding to all the operational lighting of the Container Terminal with the latest generation LED technology supplied by the Andalusian company ANDLED, both in the buildings, the automatic yard and all cranes.
This action represents an investment of more than one million euros and will achieve annual savings of around 2,800 Mwh, which is approximately 10% of the terminal’s total consumption. In addition, there will be a significant improvement in the lighting conditions and energy digitalisation of our facilities, allowing a reduction in CO2 emissions of more than 1,400 tonnes per year, equivalent to around 45,000 trees.
Furthermore, both companies will continue collaborating in the development of new projects with the aim of further reducing the CO2 footprint and contributing to the improvement of the environment.
