south-east european INDUSTRIAL MARKET 14 SEE NEWS FACC to triple production area of Croatia plant Aerospace company FACC will triple the production area of its Croatian plant for manufacturing high-tech components for cabin interiors. The construction work will be completed in June 2024, and the workforce will almost triple to 600 employees by the end of 2026. FACC is investing EUR 21 million in the expansion project. A new PV system covering an area of 2000 m2 will provide around two thirds of the annual energy consumption currently required. In expanding the new plant, FACC is relying on a high degree of automation and state-of-the-art machinery for the production of lightweight components for passenger aircraft and business jets. This includes a fully automated paint shop as well as high-precision manufacturing equipment, which will enable faster ramp-up processes and higher quantities in the future. In total, the site will be expanded by around 12 500 m2. ALRO begins three new decarbonization projects Romanian aluminium producer ALRO approved the start of three new investment projects, worth EUR 15 million, aimed at decarbonizing the technological process and increasing competitiveness, in parallel with alignment with the latest requirements and recommendations in the field of environmental protection. The company will invest in increasing the energy efficiency of the electricity supply system by installing a photovoltaic power station in the parking area, in line with the strategy of reducing carbon emissions related to its processes. The second project is aimed at extending the fume treatment plant in the Cast House to the billet and slab casting machine, which will result in the controlled discharge and treatment of exhaust gases from all furnaces. The company has also started the contracting procedures for the purchasing and installing of machines for longitudinal cutting and milling of slabs.
