Ferrari’s production decarbonisation process takes another step forward through the installation of a new 1 MW solid oxide fuel cell plant at the Maranello factories. A move with which the Prancing Horse aims to get ever closer to its goal of becoming carbon neutral in all its operations by 2030: built by Bloom Energy and installed in recent days, the plant supplies 5% of the energy needed to the company’s production activities, while at the same time reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
Compared to 1 MW produced by CHP (Combined Heat and Power) cogeneration systems, the gas requirement of the fuel cell system is about 20% lower with significant energy savings. As explained by Ferrari itself, the innovative technology adopted offers high efficiency and flexibility of choice between the energy sources that power the system without resorting to combustion: hydrogen, natural gas, biomethane or a combination thereof. And that’s not all, because to this is added the reduction of more than 99% of the pollution that causes the formation of smog and particulate matter compared to equivalent systems.
“Ferrari is more focused than ever on becoming carbon neutral by 2030through the adoption of cutting-edge technologies and a scientific approach that are part of our DNA – declared the CEO of Ferrari, Benedetto Vigna – We are thrilled to partner with Bloom Energy given the strong common commitment to a process decarbonizationand proud that their first project in Europe was carried out with us ”.
