Sanlorenzo, steadfast in its commitment to innovation and environmental responsibility, has embarked on a significant journey to reduce its carbon footprint through an exciting collaboration with Axpo Energy Solutions Italia. By establishing three new photovoltaic plants at its sites in Ameglia, Sanlorenzo aims to curb its emissions by over 600 tons of CO2 annually.


Greening the Shipyards: Photovoltaic Plants

Three new photovoltaic plants have been established at Sanlorenzo’s production sites in AmegliaLa Spezia, and Viareggio. These installations are strategically located to enhance sustainability across the company’s operations:

La Spezia: Where superyacht production takes place.


Ameglia: The Spezzino municipality housing Sanlorenzo’s main headquarters.
