PV systems integrator, Phoenix Solar is using First Solar’s CdTe thin film modules on a 1.7MW project in Italy for an independent power producer, while a 1MW plant near Rome will use CIGS thin film modules from MiaSolé. The project is for an unidentified Italian investor, according to Phoenix Solar.
In addition, Phoenix Solar’s Italian subsidiary will use both Trina Solar and MiaSolé modules on a rooftop project in the country with an estimated peak power of 227 kilowatts.
“Despite the difficult market environment, our Italian subsidiary is successful in the trading business,” noted Ulrich Reidenbach, Chief Sales Officer of Phoenix Solar AG.
We are also particularly pleased that all the power plants built by Phoenix Solar in Italy were connected to the grid by the deadline of 31 August 2011 and are therefore eligible for the feed-in tariffs valid up until then.”
Phoenix Solar also noted that it had received orders of almost 4MW for solar modules in the Components & Systems business segment from Italy in August.
