BENTELER continues modernization of Valladares plant
Vigo, October 7, 2022. BENTELER is fully on track to modernize its Valladares plant in Vigo, Spain. The main objective is the design and development of a connected, versatile, sustainable, and agile-working factory.
Specifically, the entire plant is being digitalized: Big Data and artificial intelligence techniques ensure automation and standardization along the entire value chain to offer first-class products to clients. At the same time, the plant is becoming more sustainable: Among other things, by using solar thermal panels, the BENTELER plant will significantly reduce its production-related carbon emissions. A "zero water" project is currently being analyzed to reduce water consumption.
Ricardo García, Executive Vice President Southern Europe BENTELER Automotive: “This transformation of our plant in Vigo to a state-of-the-art intelligent and sustainable factory is an important milestone for BENTELER in Spain. We want to thank the European Community and the Xunta de Galicia for their support through ERDF funds that are making this project possible. This enables us to make mobility lighter, safer, and more sustainable.”
