Rome, Italy [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] A 4 MW photovoltaic system is to be installed on the roofs of the Marcegaglia Group’s industrial plants in Taranto, Italy, by Enel GreenPower.
The system will be fully integrated into the existing architecture of the steel company’s buildings and will mostly rely on flexible thin-film amorphous silicon technology, Enel Green Power says.
The project, which will be one of the largest roof-integrated systems in Italy, is scheduled to start operating in 2010. Once fully operational, the system, owned 51% by Enel Green Power and 49% by Marcegaglia Group, is expected to produce some 5 GWh annually.
Francesco Starace, chairman of Enel Green Power, commented: “Enel Green Power has an ambitious growth plan and a substantial pipeline of photovoltaic projects in Italy and abroad: this agreement enables us to further strengthen our presence in the steadily expanding domestic market, in which we firmly believe.”
