“95 percent in the first sunny days of March”

Béla Csipai, Managing Director of mamutec Hungary Kft. in Gyomaendrőd

The solar plant covering 2,000 m2 at the Mamutec subsidiary in the south of Hungary has been in operation since 24 February. In our interview, the company’s Managing Director, Béla Csipai, tells us about the drawbacks of hot summer days, his trust in the engineers and what gives him a positive outlook.

Mr Csipai, it’s cloudy here in Switzerland. What’s the weather like today in Hungary?
(laughs) It’s been very sunny here since this morning and – hang on, I’ll just look out the window to check – the sun is still shining now! We had temperatures of up to 20 degrees in February too.

You are based in the south of Hungary, close to the Romanian border, where the sun shines up to 2,500 hours a year. Does that make your location a paradise for generating solar power?
The conditions are indeed ideal – not only because of the abundance of sunshine but also because both Hungary and the EU offer financial support for solar energy projects. Our investments in clean energy are nevertheless high, but certainly well worth it: after all, they represent a direct investment in our future. Our calculation is based on a cautious estimate of 1,300 hours of sunshine. It is important to bear in mind that very hot summer afternoons, for instance, are actually counter-productive when it comes to generating solar power. As a result, the hours of sunshine in the spring and autumn actually play a more essential role. In the winter, on the other hand, it already gets dark at 4 pm, but our late shift doesn’t end until 10:30 pm.

What are the consequences?
At certain times, we will have to use electricity from the mains supply. In other phases, however, we can cover around 90 to 100 percent of our needs with our own solar power. Unlike solar panels installed on private homes, solar power systems like ours with a rating of more than 50 kWh are unable to feed excess solar power back into the grid. As a result, we only produce as much electricity as we actually use.

And what does this mean in terms of figures?
If we take our estimate of 1,300 kWh per square metre per year, that equates to a total of 400,000 kWh. This corresponds to CO2 savings of up to 300 tonnes, as much as 60 percent, per year, which represents an important step towards a successful energy transition. Of course, it could be said that such a figure isn’t all that much, but if every company were to reduce its emissions by 300 tonnes, this would certainly have an impressive impact. Sustainability is a goal that we can only achieve if we work together.

The solar plant has now been in operation for a month. Did everything get off to a smooth start?
Yes, everything worked perfectly right from the word go. Of course, I’m not an engineer, so we had to simply trust what the experts were telling us (laughs). But it certainly seems like they hit the nail on the head.

It’s usual to wait a hundred days before drawing your first conclusions, but can you already assess how successful the project has been?
The measurements show that we are now already close to meeting our expectations. In the first sunny days of March, we even covered around 95 percent of our needs with the electricity produced by our solar plant. This gives us a good feeling and an optimistic outlook for the months and years to come.

Your plant uses monocrystalline solar panels from the Spanish Eurener Group, which is now one of the largest manufacturers of solar panels in Europe. Why did you choose this supplier?
In our selection process at the end of 2019, the Eurener MEPV Turbo Superior monocrystalline 320 W panels convinced us with their unrivalled efficiency and clearly came out on top. They achieve a total power of 364 kW, which is very impressive indeed.

How can the success of the plant be verified?
Our website provides interested visitors with a real-time summary of how much CO2 we are saving and how much power we are using. These figures are updated every ten seconds.

Last but not least, let’s take a look back in time: What hurdles turned out to be particularly tough to overcome when implementing the project?
All of the administrative tasks involved in the planning were extremely time-consuming. We started to prepare for the project back in 2019. In November 2019, we received notification that we met the requirements, so immediately started to focus on the calculation. Hungary finally gave us the go-ahead in 2020, just as the Covid-19 pandemic started to wreak havoc. Despite this development, we had to quickly get to work on constructing our modern halls with roofs compatible with solar technology because the subsidies had a deadline – in our case, March 2022. The installation of the 1,138 solar panels on the roofs was actually a very rapid process considering the fact that we didn’t start to install them until October 2021. The workers weren’t allowed up on the slippery roof in wet weather, but nevertheless, everything was finished on time – the entire team did an outstanding job!

Thank you for taking the time to talk to us – and enjoy the sunshine!


Everyone’s talking about sustainability.
But we’ve launched a product line too.

Energy from the sun.

Tackling global warming.
With solar power and with you.

The sun makes the difference.
Make the most of it!

Embracing solar power.
For a smaller carbon footprint.



Fewer emissions: By generating our own solar power, we reduce our CO2 emissions by around 300 tonnes per year.



Taking responsibility: For us, environmental and climate protection are not just a vision but a mission. This is why we are already focusing on environmentally friendly and sustainable production – right here and right now.



Avoiding waste: As a member of the “Dual System for the Recycling of Sales
Packaging”, we already saved as much CO2 as a forest covering 2,642 m2 filters from the air every year in 2020.
