Siemens Energy has received an order from Ital Green Energy to build and equip a 15MWp solar photovoltaic power station in the Apulia region of Italy. The San Donaci plant will be connected to the Italian grid by late 2010 and will be capable of supplying electricity to around 5500 Italian households.
In addition to plant design and engineering of the project, Siemens will provide inverters, transformers, and medium-voltage equipment as well as the monitoring and control system, and will also erect the plant. Its partner will be Italiana Costruzioni 2000 (like Ital Green, a Marseglia Group company), which will be in charge of the civil works, as well as the supply and erection of the support structures.
“In the past we’ve successfully completed numerous projects with the Marseglia Group,” said René Umlauft, CEO of Siemens’ renewable energy division. “With our comprehensive know-how spanning the entire energy conversion chain, we’ll also be supporting Ital Green Energy in the future in the implementation of its ambitious plans to expand renewable energy and to set up smart grid solutions.”
Siemens did not state the type of PV modules to be deployed nor the monetary value of the deal.
