NEDGIA’s Large Consumption manager for the central zone, María Carmen Cruz, and the managing director of MOVIALSA, Marcelino Chacón, signed an agreement whereby the wine-making company will convert its facilities located in Campo de Criptana (Ciudad Real) to natural gas.
MOVIALSA, a company of the Huertas Group, is currently focusing on renovating its facilities. Specifically, the cogeneration plant named “Movialsa I” will now operate on natural gas, a cleaner and more efficient source of energy that will allow the company to reduce its energy bills, in addition to a series of other advantages. In addition to high-efficiency electricity, this cogeneration plant also provides industrial cooling to ensure that the company’s wines ferment correctly, thermal energy to heat water to the high temperatures required for grape juice concentrate production, steam to distil alcohol and, lastly, thermal energy to dry out biomass.
Natural gas provides significant advantages such as financial savings compared to alternative energies, lower environmental emissions and supply continuity, which means that industrial applications associated with natural gas are increasingly valued.
