Italy: TerniEnergia installs 20 MWp of PV in Q2; 31 MW in pipeline

The Italian-based photovoltaic company has been hard at work before the country’s new feed-in tariffs come into play. Having installed 20.4 MWp in the last quarter, it has already started work on a further 31 MWp.

It notes that 4.1 MWp of the already-installed capacity was performed in "full equity" and will either remain under the company’s ownership, or be sold after grid connection. Meanwhile, three MWp were undertaken as part of "equally owned" joint ventures, and 13.3 MWp were installed for a number of unidentified third parties.

The regions where the photovoltaic projects are installed are: Piemonte, Veneto, Umbria, Lazio, Molise, Puglia and Sardegna.

TerniEnergia says activity has significantly increased on last year, with the company installing just 13.8 MWp in the second quarter of 2010.

It is now concentrating on the installation of eight photovoltaic plants worth 31 MWp. Broken down, this pipeline includes one, one MWp plant to be performed in full equity, one 2.9 MWp project to be carried out under a joint venture, and six plants worth 27.1 MWp to be installed for "very important" national operators.
