Enel to build 9 MW Italian PV plant

However, the company would not respond to pv magazine’s questions about when construction will begin, how much will be invested in the project, or when it is expected to be completed.

In a statement, it did say the plant is set to be located on the site where, in 1981, the company built the first concentrating solar plant in the world, Eurelios. Furthermore, the Adrano plant, which has received the go-ahead from the Region of Sicily, is expected to generate over 14 million kilowatt hours a year.

The main components of the Eurelios solar power plant, which will be decommissioned in the initial stages of construction, will reportedly be sent to MUSIL, the Museum of Industry and Work in Brescia.
