Parma Italy Goes Solar!

As part of our commitment to Operate Sustainably, Ingersoll Rand has finalized the installation of photovoltaic panels at our plant in Parma, Italy. From now on, a large part of Parma’s energy will come from a clean and renewable source, solar and photoelectric energy, which will reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and promote more environmentally friendly production.

The Industrial Technologies and Services (ITS) EMEIA plant in Parma has more than 210 employees and produces a range of Robox blowers, blowing units, screws, pumps, vacuum assemblies and centrifugal pumps. The Parma plant is able to offer engineered-to-order customizations to our products, allowing Ingersoll Rand to cater to its clients’ needs and engineer solutions within the ever-evolving world of purification and air treatment.


The installation of solar photovoltaic systems at our Parma plant supports Ingersoll Rand’s 2030 and 2050 Environmental Goals to improve water, air and land quality.

Our ITS, EMEIA team aims to install solar photovoltaic systems in three Italy locations: Vignate, went live in October, Parma is the second location to launch and Fogliano is soon to come! The team’s goal for their solar sites is that 30% of energy needed for the plant to operate is obtained from solar panels, and that the energy the plant does not use for production is distributed to the community and can power the national electricity grid.

Beyond Italy, recent solar launches include Chanzhou, China and Naroda, India.


Ingersoll Rand is excited about these solar projects that demonstrate our commitment to sustainability.
