Croatia Control Ltd (CCL) said it installed a 345 kW photovoltaic facility on the roof of its parking lot in September. In the summer months the company will supply one-third of daily power consumption at its headquarters in Velika Gorica from the solar panels. The project is worth EUR 350.000, the press release said.

The air navigation service provider said it is one of the first in its branch in Europe to use the renewable energy source generating this much electric power for its business operations. Peak load varies from 500 kW in winter to 800 kW in summer because of more electrical load in the summer months due to the stringent air-conditioning regime applied to technical and operational facilities, Croatia Control said.

Flamtron d. o. o. from Kutina was hired for the overall project, with EMGD d. o. o. from the same town as the subcontractor.
