The plants – De Nittis 1, 2 and 3 – are to be installed near the city of Foggia in the south east of the country. Located on adjacent sites, they will have a combined generating capacity of 39 megawatts (MW) and are expected to be operational by the third quarter of this year.
ABB says it will supply the plants with a complete electrical and control solution, including grid connections.
The company adds that it is currently completing a similar multi-plant engineering, procurement and construction contract for the same customer. The four PV plants, collectively known as Macchia Rotonda, are also located in the Foggia area. They have a combined generating capacity of 15 MW.
