Solon has been awarded the contract for construction of 16 greenfield installations in the Northern Italian provinces of Friuli and Veneto, with a total combined capacity of approximately 12.5MWp. The project is one of the invitations to tender announced throughout the EU last year by SunTergrid, the wholly owned subsidiary of Rome-based independent power grid operator, Terna.
Solar power plants with a total capacity of 100MWp are also planned for 2010. They will be awarded by additional invitations to tender. The power plants of the current tender have a capacity of between 200kWp and 2MWp and will be constructed in the provinces of Padova, Vicenza, Verona, Rovigo, Treviso, Belluno, Venezia, Udine and Triest.
Solon will assume the role of general contractor for engineering and project management as well as the turnkey implementation of the installations.
