Together We Protect

April 20th, 2023

Renewable energy sources play a key role in reducing climate change and protecting the environment. Aware of this, Zoomarine takes another big step in its mission to contribute to environmental sustainability.

Taking advantage of the Algarve’s privileged solar exposure, a further 2’550 photovoltaic modules were installed at Zoomarine. This represents a removal of almost 2 tons of CO2 from our atmosphere, equivalent to the carbon capture of 929 hectares of forest per year, or the removal of 404 vehicles from the road per year.

These solar panels join two other installations of the theme park, with a combined power of 110 kVA and area of 1,835m2. With the completion of the project, Zoomarine will have a photovoltaic installation that will provide a total power of 999 kVA.

With an annual production of 2.6 MWh, Zoomarine can ensure that about 50% of the park’s energy needs are supplied by its own green production.

This is another investment in the constant evolution towards a more sustainable park, always bearing in mind the cornerstone values of conservation and protection of the environment and its species.

In recent years, Zoomarine has been investing in a set of other measures and projects to reduce the environmental impact of the park’s operation, with the digitalization of services, adoption of water and energy saving measures, continuous improvements in waste management, use of organic and biodegradable solutions in the maintenance of green spaces, fleet renewal for electric vehicles and replacement of single-use plastics in the restaurant areas, by biodegradable equivalents.
