Kyocera has delivered a further 10MW of modules to the Cigliano PV park near Turin in Italy. The additional 41,280 modules will be distributed equally between the Lotti and Petiva sites and takes the park’s total capacity to 16MW.
The park, owned an operated by Enermill Energie Rinnovabili, is now fitted with a total of 68,100 Kyocera modules – the largest Kyocera-powered system in Italy – and will generate around 20GWh of electricity a year.
Enermill connected the initial 6MW to the Italian energy grid in April. The original development phase saw 13,920 215W and 12,900 235W modules installed.
Cigliano is not the only project to sign a module supply contract with Kyocera; in 2011 the manufacturer has agreed to equip a 204MW project in Thailand, a 13MW plant in eastern Japan and a 2MW installation in northwest France.
