2023. 12. 05.
Japanese-owned TDK Hungary Components Kft. installs a new solar and heat pump system in value of HUF 3.4 billion which essentially enables the company to disconnect from the natural gas grid. The investment will be implemented from the company’s own funds and the incentives available under the Government’s Factory Rescue Program.
TDK Hungary Components Kft. is a member of the leading electronics concern, Tokyo-based TDK, and it is also deemed as its most significant European hub for development and manufacturing. The Hungarian subsidiary that functions in Szombathely develops and produces electronics parts not only in automotive but also in the field of consumer electronics, among others.
The company has launched a large-scale energy-focused investment from own funds and the incentives available under the Government’s Factory Rescue Program in value of HUF 3.4 billion. The amount will be used to expand its use of renewable energy (solar panel system), install more energy-efficient air handling equipment and build a system to monitor the company's infrastructure. The investment will also include the construction of energy storage capacity for the solar systems.
The investments covered by the aid will be completed by March 2025 at the latest and will contribute significantly to reducing TDK Hungary Components Kft.'s exposure to energy prices
Thanks to the investment TDK Szombathely will become almost completely gas-independent. The company will also contribute to securing the energy supply of the population.
