ABB Bulgaria plant in Rakovski achieved 1,250* tons of CO2e reduction and saved 22 percent of energy consumption as part of the Mission to Zero™ program

The factory improved energy intensity by 43 percent by using sustainable approaches in its manufacturing operations

ABB's power supply and electrical equipment factory in Rakovski, Bulgaria takes a major step towards zero-emissions operations by reducing CO2e by 1,250 tonnes. This is largely due to energy optimization measures such as 100 percent energy metering and control, a building management system, installation of heat pumps, LED lighting upgrades and installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging points.

The plant reduced the energy consumption of its operations by 22 percent, but also increased production revenue, which significantly improved energy intensity by 43 percent compared to 2019. The 39,000 square meter plant consists of two production buildings and produces low and medium voltage products for data centers, industrial and manufacturing plants, critical infrastructure and buildings.

From 2021, the team at the Rakovski branch took steps to support ABB's Sustainable Development Program. The first significant step was to upgrade all conventional lighting in the two production halls with energy-saving LED luminaires and the integration of the ABB i-bus KNX system for intelligent lighting control.
