Valencia. Ford Almussafes will install photovoltaic panel plants within the Almussafes factory with the aim of achieving carbon emission neutrality by 2035. This was indicated by the director of manufacturing for Ford Spain, Dionisio Campos, during his participation in the conference ‘Comunitat Valenciana towards the future’, organized by Europa Press.
Campos has defended that the transition towards green energies “is not optional” and that the change towards electric mobility can be tackled “in different ways”, both at the level of production and generation of energy. In this sense, the director highlighted that Ford has three divisions dedicated to electrical monitoring with the aim of offering “solutions to professionals” in a “more productive, efficient and flexible” way. He has also highlighted the Ford Blue division “which is dedicated to competing and financing the current business.” And it is that, as he has indicated, the company will only produce 100% electric vehicles by 2030 and that in 2035, the factory aims to be ‘carbon neutral’.
Give up the Perte
On the other hand, he has assured that the company renounced to participate in the Perte of the electric vehicle because the investment times “did not fit”. Seeing that his company could not comply with what both the Government and Europe asked for, they did not put it on the table.
Precisely this Tuesday the Minister of Industry, Reyes Maroto, met the criticism of the PP for this resignation of Ford, assuring that the automobile firm values state aid and is committed to the Almussafes factory.
On the other hand, Ford announced yesterday that it has delayed one of the ERTE stops in force for October and has confirmed two others already planned for this month.
