We negotiated a 20-year contract involving full energy and utilities outsourcing for vehicle components maker Rába Automotive and for all companies that are located on Rába’s premises. The contract includes supply of all utility services including heat, electricity, hot water, steam, cooling, water treatment, compressed air and lighting to the Rába industrial zone. The facility operated by Saphire’s subsidiary includes a Combined Heat and Power Plant consisting of three gas engines totalling 8.5 MW of electric capacity.
We have implemented a series of energy efficiency investments which, among others, includes a new energy management system, a refurbishment of heating system, efficiency improvements in compressed air supply, and drilling of own wells for water supply.
After several years of successful operation, Saphire divested the project in 2016.
