Ardagh Glass Packaging launches second solar energy plant in the Netherlands

Ardagh Glass Packaging-Europe (AGP-Europe), an operating business of Ardagh Group, announced today that a major solar power plant at its facility in Moerdijk, the Netherlands, is now supplying renewable electricity on-site, to reduce the facility’s carbon footprint by an estimated 725 tonnes of CO2 annually. Ardagh Group has partnered with independent solar energy specialist Zoncoalitie, and energy supplier Eneco, to deliver the solar plant at Moerdijk – the second AGP-Europe on-site solar project, and the third in the Netherlands for Ardagh Group.

This project, which contributes to Ardagh Group’s strategy to use 100% renewable electricity by 2030, follows the launch of the company’s first solar power plant in the Netherlands, which has been supplying the AGP-Dongen facility since September last year.

Annelene Ikemann, Sustainability Director, AGP-Europe, commented:

“The Moerdijk solar installation is expected to generate over 2,500 MWh of electricity per annum, which is another step closer to achieving our target of using 100% renewable electricity across our AGP-Europe facilities by 2030, using a mix of on-site and off-site installations.”

Eneco’s Senior Solar Project Developer, Jeffrey de Rooij, said: “We are delighted to partner with Ardagh and Zoncoalitie to deliver this on-site solar project: another step towards decarbonising by replacing conventional electricity production with sustainable solar energy.”

Adriaan Copper, Commercial Director at Zoncoalitie, added: “We are proud to see Ardagh Glass Packaging’s second major solar project go live in the Netherlands, thanks to the excellent teamwork between AGP, Eneco and Zoncoalitie.”

More installations are expected to follow, to progress toward Ardagh Group’s 2023 targets.
