This manufacturing facility for Kingspan is set to produce all technologically advanced thermal insulation locally for distribution. Kingspan will showcase 5 Star Green Star efficiencies including high-performance insulation throughout, energy- saving smart lighting, a 800 kW solar renewable energy system and an innovative rain water capture system. These innovations allow Kingspan to set a new bench mark of Australian engineering due to the high level of renewable energy utilized and environmentally sustainable systems. Kingspan has a 2020 global target of net zero emissions for all its manufacturing facilities, and the new Somerton facility will contribute directly to this goal.
