Borealis builds second photovoltaic plant

The new photovoltaic plant is being built at the Schwechat site in Austria in cooperation with VERBUND.


Borealis is one of the world's leading polyolefin manufacturers and also sees itself as a European pioneer in polyolefin recycling. Borealis is pursuing the goal of covering one hundred percent of its electricity requirements from renewable sources - if possible by the year 2030. The new photovoltaic plant, which Borealis is currently building at the Schwechat site together with VERBUND, the leading energy company in Austria, will also serve this purpose. After the plant in Linz, this is already the second cooperation project with VERBUND. The plant to be installed in Schwechat on an area of 75,000 square metres is to be completed by the end of the year and will then supply a total output of around 5.6 gigawatt hours (GWh) per year. This is roughly equivalent to the annual consumption of 1,400 Austrian households. According to the company, the PV plant would reduce the site's annual CO2 emissions by around 1,200 tonnes..
