Enel Awarded 25-MW Thin-film PV Project

Enel Green Power, Centro Ingrosso Sviluppo Campania (CIS) and Interporto Campano signed an agreement this week for the installation of a 25-megawatt (MW) roof-top solar photovoltaic plant in Campania, Italy.

The plant, which will be owned by Enel Green Power, will be installed on the roofs of commercial and logistics properties, with full integration with the existing architecture. Equipped with flexible amorphous silicon thin-film photovoltaic modules, it will begin to operate in 2010.

Once fully operational, the plant will be capable of producing approximately 33 million kilowatt-hours of power each year.

“We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with such key organisations as Interporto Campano and Centro Ingrosso Sviluppo Campania. This agreement will enable Enel Green Power to build one of the largest roof-top photovoltaic plants in the world, at a logistics centre of enormous importance to Southern Italy and an example of excellence at the international level,” said Francesco Starace, Chairman of Enel Green Power.
