The Group has continued with its policy of replacing all non-LED lighting within its control.
Dechra solar panel installation has been operational since 28 June 2019. The project in Zagreb cost US$1.6million and was partially subsidised by EU funds. The facility is now the largest integrated power plant for own consumption in Croatia and has been recognised by the Emissary of Prime Minister of the Republic of Croatia as a vital renewable energy project. It consists of 5543 solar photovoltaic panels which have been fitted onto existing roof structures across the factory. Any surplus electricity from the power plant is distributed to the municipal electrical grid. The plant took seven months to complete and was commissioned in June 2019. Until then, the facility sourced all of its energy via the main grid. Annually, electric power generation is expected to reach approximately 1,545,000 kWh and will generate nearly a third of the electric power needed for Dechra’s Croatian manufacturing facility.
