Fujifilm Tilburg plant completely wind-powered

Fujifilm has demonstrated its continuing commitment to the environment by using wind energy for its European plate making plant in Tilburg.

The plant has been partly wind-powered since 2011 but Fujifilm has long stated its intention to use wind energy to completely power the plant and has now succeeded in this aim through a partnership with Dutch energy supplier Eneco. The wind turbines that drive the plant’s manufacturing capability are located on-site and in nearby Zeeland, and the 100 gigawatt hours of energy they generate for the Fujifilm facility is enough to power 30,000 homes.

Fujifilm and Eneco are also now investigating the possibility of producing bio-mass steam on the Fujifilm site, to further enhance the renewable and green credentials of the plant.

Marc van der Linden, a board member with Eneco, commented: “Fujifilm is showing commendable courage and leadership in having taken this bold step. They are setting an excellent example to their industry and to other businesses in the surrounding area.
