Fashion brand Diffusione Tessile, a subsidiary of Max Mara Group, has had an 862.25kW multi-section solar plant installed on the rooftops of its industrial unit in Cavriago, Reggio Emilia, between Bologna and Milan in central northern Italy.
Portgular-based firm Martifer Solar said it had installed over 3,400 polycrystalline modules manufactured by EL.ITAL. in a relatively short time over the summer, despite adverse weather conditions.
The plant is divided into three sections and has a production capacity of just over 1GWh/year. Since the majority of components were supplied by European companies, the plant will benefit from GSE Register feed-in-tariff incentives.
The Cavriago plant, along with a 195kW industrial rooftop installation for Flexpackaging in Salerno, brings Martifer’s total installations in Italy up to 55 MW since 2008.
