Optim PM assisted Arctic SA during the entire construction period to comply with LEED rigor and currently, Arctic new facility is under certification procedures targeting the Platinum level.
The new investment is a Greenfield type and consists of a production building, storage area and offices, wastewater treatment plant, battery charging station, infiltration, and evaporation pond, concentrated solar panels and photovoltaic panels on the top of the building, retention tank, transformer station, etc. The factory is protecting the neighbourhood wildlife with specific environmental elements, such as a 30 meters wide tree line.
“Arctic New Manufacturing Facility is one of the biggest industrial investments in Romania totalling 100 million Euro. In December 2018, the final reception took place and the first trial production occurred. We are happy to have been involved in such a large scheme and proud at the same time that we proved Optim PM’s capability as General Designer.”
