Green Power, Clean Air


Are the sun and water resources that could clear the path to a climate-neutral world or just another “bad master” who could bring droughts and floods? Both scenarios are equally possible. However, what kind of world we will dawn in tomorrow depends exclusively on how we use these natural potentials.

Fortunately, many individuals and companies have already embraced clean technologies, making the future we want more feasible. One of such companies is the Centre for Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Development (CEEFOR), which has a long-term “cooperation” with our closest star, using their knowledge and eleven-years long experience to design solar power plants for more than 500 foreign and domestic customers.

On the other hand, the company Minaqua, a leader in the production and sale of unique natural mineral water rich in iodine, constantly strives to protect the environment maximally during the production process. The use of new technologies and constant development are their top priorities, but never to the detriment of the environment.

These two companies, each a leader in their respective field, have recently reached out to each other to realize another important project, not only for their mutual satisfaction but also for the general benefit of society.

No two projects are the same, and experts know that best. To meet all customer needs and design an efficient and long-lasting solar power plant, the team uniquely approaches each project, using proven knowledge and skills.

Once Minaqua decided to build a solar power plant, they started searching for a partner who would carefully listen to all their wishes and provide the best solutions.

They entrusted the project to CEEFOR and got what they bargained for. After a careful audit of the space and the conditions at their disposal, the experts decided to make specific constructions for pitched roofs. The roof of the Minaqua factory has a specific counter-slope inclination, so the angle of the solar panels to the south had to be raised by five degrees with special construction.

The professional and well-coordinated team of the CEEFOR quickly came up with the ideal solution to make the solar power plant work as efficiently as possible.


According to the design, the input power of the power plant on the DC (one-way) side is 220 kW, while the output power on the alternating side is 200 kW.

After a meticulous selection process, the producer Canadian Solar was chosen to provide precisely 597 modules of 370 W. Besides the solar panels, which will cover a roof area of 1,663 m2, the power plant will also contain 10 Symo 20 inverters manufactured by Fronius.

It all adds up. The solar power plant, which will be installed on the factory roof, will produce 275,380 KW annually.

As Minaqua pays special attention to environmental protection, the installation of solar panels is another step that will contribute to alleviating the climate crisis since the annual carbon dioxide savings will amount to a total of 220,221 kg.

Finally, when choosing between the on-grid and off-grid systems, Minaqua opted for the former. Having in mind all the benefits of the on-grid system brought by the current national energy policy (not only to gain from the possibility of excess electricity flow in both directions in the electricity distribution network to reduce electricity bills later but also to take part in the of auction systems expected to commence at the end of the year), this socially responsible company has decided to take on the promoter role, which means that they will be both producers and buyers of electricity.

After another successfully completed project, CEEFOR’s portfolio became richer for another valuable experience and knowledge, while Minaqua awaits the moment when it will start producing green kilowatts.
