Sustainability is essential for life (and survival):

Successful energy management

A total of 10,000 photovoltaic modules, which cover an area as big as six football pitches, gleam on the roofs of the production buildings in Gaste, Bramsche, Leeden, Altmoorhausen and Leipzig. The combined installed capacity of the solar installations is 3,000 kilowatts. The latest solar installation has just been erected at the Hude-Altmoorhausen plant and will come on stream in the near future. We generate the electricity for our own use for the most part. This guarantees both low electricity costs for many years and reduces the load on the power stations in the current difficult situation. Last but not least, we are making progress on the road to CO² reduction. 

In the last six years, the AMAZONE Group has invested approximately 4.2 million euros in various energy-saving measures. More than 5 million euros have already been saved over this period, in order to be able to continue to produce AMAZONE machines economically. The AMAZONE energy management team, together with our energy scouts, will continue to be active in this area.
