More solar power for our chinese and vietnamese plants

Let the sun shine!

Zhangjiagang Yangtse Spinning, China

At the end of 2021, Zhangjiagang Yangtse Spinning Co. LTD installed photovoltaics (PV) panels on the roof of ZYS 5 with a production capacity of 414 kWp. For the first half of 2022, further installation on the roof of ZYS 1, 2, 3 and DyeCo PV is planned with an estimated power output of 900 kWp. The generated electricity can be used for own consumption and also be fed into the public power supply network. Through this installation, an estimated 1200 tons of carbon dioxide emissions can be saved annually.

DaLat Worsted Spinning, Vietnam

In two phases, our spinning mill DaLat Worsted Spinning in Vietnam was equipped with PV panels providing a total expected power output of 2040 kWp. This will lead to a production of an estimated 3.670 MW/h per year. This will  approximately save 2950 tons of carbon dioxide compared to conventional methods of electricity production.

A new dyehouse in Germany

Rifa (Richter Färberei & Ausrüstung) is part of Südwolle Group since 2014 and specialized in the dyeing process and treatment of wool, silk and man-made-fibres.

With the following goals in mind Rifa took on the challenge of building up a new dyehouse:

  • fully digitized and automated production with highest standard in ergonomic comfort for the people working there

  • possibility to dye all products and qualities in flexible batch sizes 

As soon as construction is done and the production is running smoothly, we are expecting the following ecological and economical savings during the dyeing process:

  • 45% less fresh water cosumption which will lead to an estimated yearly saving of 60.000 m³

  • 40% less electricity which lead to an estimated yearly saving of 400.000 kWh

  • 18% less steam during production which leads to an estimated yearly saving of 1.500 MWh in gas
