It is the inauguration of Automobili Lamborghini’s new trigeneration and district heating systems that have caused the company’s Sant’Agata Bolognese plant to be recognized by DNV GL (Det Norske Veritas Germanischer Lloyd), a global and leading environmental risk management classification, verification and service company.

Conservation of energy and preservation of the environment has always been the responsibility of Automobili Lamborghini while higher levels of sustainability has also been its leading objective. This new certification earned by Lamborghini factory will not get affected even after the new expansion plans are implemented.

The company’s trigeneration system is located inside the premises of the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory. It sees generation of electricity, heating and cooling by way of natural gas. Installed power stands at 1.2 MW while each year 9,800 MWhe is generated. Saving of emissions will be about 820 tonnes of CO2 each year. By 2017, the plant will be efficiently fuelled by biogas, thus bring down CO2 emissions even further by about 5,600 tonnes per annum.
