Martifer Solar started construction in October on two new PV plants in Northern Italy, which combined will produce 3.1MW (DC) of power. The first plant located in the province of Cremona is a 1MW (DC) fixed structure constructed on around 6 acres of land; a result of an investment by a local farm that separated its businesses into renewable energies.
The second PV project will also be a fixed structure and located in Alessandria with a total power output of 2.08MW (DC). Being built across nine acres of land, the project stems from a second agreement between Martifer Solar signed with Sunflower Italia.
“We are pleased to have started a replica of our previous project in Alessandria with Sunflower and to add another project to our track record in the North of Italy – Cremona – raising it to more than 8MW(DC) currently in progress. In particular, Cremona project allowed us to add the agricultural category to our clients’ portfolio which was only composed by financial and industrial clients so far.” Pedro Pereira, managing director of Martifer Solar Italy, stated.
Construction for both plants is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
