Renovatio Solar has recently completed a photovoltaic project with a capacity of 400 kWp for KLG Europe Logistics Romania, one of the leaders in the local logistics and transportation services market.



“The project involved the installation of 888 photovoltaic panels with a capacity of 400 kWp, capable of generating an estimated annual amount of electricity of 500 MWh. These panels were placed in the KLG warehouse located in Bolintin Deal, Giurgiu County, where the company’s central headquarters are also located,” said Horațiu Regneală, CEO of Renovatio Solar.

The investment value was in the hundreds of thousands of euros, and the operating life of the newly installed system is 25-30 years. KLG Europe Romania is one of the leaders in the local logistics and transportation services market, offering road, maritime, and air transport, storage, value-added services, e-fulfillment, and courier services for bulky products.

“In recent times, we have invested over 1 million euros in digitization and sustainable initiatives, considering that the benefits for the company in both areas are evident: greater independence in conducting operational processes and significant cost reductions. Regarding investments in photovoltaic panels, they cover approximately 40% of the annual energy consumption and are equivalent to planting 1,600 trees,” detailed Răzvan Marinescu, Managing Director of KLG Europe Logistics Romania.

Following the technical-economic evaluation facilitated by Renovatio Solar, KLG decided that the best solution to meet its needs is an on-grid system that supplies energy for its own consumption, while excess electricity is delivered to the grid.

“This system allows beneficiaries to reduce their electricity costs and contribute to environmental protection by using a clean and renewable energy source, thus ensuring a higher level of energy independence,” added Horațiu Regneală.

Renovatio Solar provided complete EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) services for KLG Europe Logistics Romania, from design, consulting, and development to installation and commissioning.

Through this project, Renovatio Solar supports KLG’s strategy of using renewable energy and protecting the environment. In addition to financial benefits, the use of renewable energy is important for the environment. Specifically, electricity generation from renewable sources reduces greenhouse gas emissions and helps limit global warming. The green electricity produced by the photovoltaic system implies a reduction in carbon footprint of approximately 147 tons of CO2 per year, and over the next 25 years, the photovoltaic system will produce green energy that will reduce the carbon footprint by approximately 3,675 tons of CO2. Furthermore, the use of photovoltaic energy contributes to the protection of natural resources, which are limited and exhaustible.

Renovatio is a pioneer in the renewable energy industry in Romania, developing a complete ecosystem of major renewable projects in the field, with over 18 years of experience in renewable energy development, EPC, generation, marketing, supply, and asset management, making it a trusted player in the Romanian and international energy market.

KLG Europe Logistics Romania is a member of the KLG Europe group, which became part of the Sinotrans group at the end of 2019. KLG Europe Logistics Romania currently operates 9 strategically positioned hubs in the largest cities nationwide (Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Timișoara, Brașov, Sibiu, Craiova, Constanța, Brăila, and Bacău).
