ABB, the power and automation technology group based in Switzerland, has won an order worth US$50 million from Actelios Solar, to supply three photovoltaic solar power plants in western Sicily, Italy. The plants, with a total combined power capacity of over 13MW, will be based in Spinasanta, Cardonita and Sugherotorto and will be 6MW, 3.8MW and 3.3MW respectively.

Each plant will be connected to the grid, supplying a total of 19GWh annually. ABB will supply the transformers, medium- and low-voltage switchgear, protection devices and an advanced control system, with remote control and diagnostic capability, to optimize operations and ensure maximum efficiency.

“Renewable energies like solar play an increasingly important role in adding power capacity with minimal environmental impact, and ABB has a significant technology portfolio to harness and integrate these energies into the grid,” said Peter Leupp, head of ABB’s Power Systems division.

The project is expected to be complete by the end of 2010.
