As part of a planned 41MW of multiple 1MW type solar plants expected to begin construction in Italy in 2009, Enerqos one of the countries largest turnkey suppliers of solar systems and plants is to begin construction of four, 1MW solar plants for European merchant bank, NextEnergy Capital.
“The construction of these installations is the first step of a long-term partnership with Enerqos,” commented Stephen DM Sommadossi, co-founder of NextEnergy Capital. “Our expansion into Italy has led to the creation of these solar power installations which will guarantee our place among the undisputed leaders of the market by 2010.”
The first plants are to be built in Apulia, Italy with a commercial value of approximately €20 million. The modules used in the four projects will use Enerqos’ biaxial ‘Solar Totem’ tracking technology, which is claimed to increase system performance by 38% compared to conventional fixed mounting systems.
