Freire Shipyard reduces its environmental footprint with the installation of an aerothermal system in its offices.

As part of its environmental policy aimed at reducing its impact on the environment, Freire Shipyard has implemented an aerothermal system in its offices. The system consists of an aerothermal heat pump that harnesses thermal energy from the outside air to generate heat inside the offices of its workplace located at Avenida Beiramar 18 in Vigo.

The project involved the installation of a 62.50 kW aerothermal heat pump, covering an annual thermal demand of 57,068.18 kWh/year, resulting in the avoidance of 4.97 tons of CO2 annually. The installation operates for 2,290.41 hours per year, with a Seasonal Performance Factor (SPF) of 2.53, meaning that for every kWh of electricity consumed, 2.53 kWh of thermal energy is produced.

This project was financed through the call for proposals from INEGA (Instituto Enerxético de Galicia) dated March 21, 2022, approving the procedure for granting aid under the Program for incentives for the implementation of renewable thermal energy installations in different sectors of the economy, within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation, and Resilience Plan, funded by the European Union-NextGenerationEU (procedure code IN422N).

With this initiative, Freire Shipyard demonstrates its commitment to sustainability and energy transition, contributing to the decarbonization of the sector, improving environmental quality, and enhancing the thermal comfort of its employees.
