Ardagh Glass Packaging launches major solar energy installation in the Netherlands

A major new solar power plant at the Ardagh Glass Packaging (AGP) facility in Dongen, the Netherlands, is now live, supplying renewable electricity on-site. The development is part of Ardagh Group’s strategy to use 100% renewable electricity by 2030, to significantly reduce its carbon footprint.

The Netherlands is the first country in which Ardagh will supply all production facilities – glass and metal - with on-site generated sustainable energy via large-scale solar energy installations.

Annelene Ikemann, Sustainability Director, AGP-Europe, commented: “The start-up of the new solar installation, which we expect to generate over 8000 MWh of electricity per annum, is a significant step in making our target to use 100% renewable electricity by 2030 a reality. We are excited that two additional installations in other regions will also be commissioned soon.”

Hans Monden, Operations Director, AGP-Europe Benelux, commented: “The investment in solar panels proves Ardagh Group’s commitment to a sustainable future. I am proud that the Dongen facility is at the forefront in generating and using its own solar electricity within our industry.”

Ardagh plans to roll out the technology, with local energy partners, across all regions by 2030.
