Italy’s Enertronica signs 200 MW solar supply and service deal in Spain

Italian inverter specialist Enertronica has this week signed a lucrative couple of supply deals with Spanish EPCs for the delivery of 200 MW worth of PV components.

The contracts – currently in the form of memorandums of understanding (MOUs) – are for the supply of solar inverters as well as all digital control systems such as SCADA and power plant controllers, Enertronica said.

Final contracts for the €24 million deal are expected to be concluded over the next few months, with shipments beginning soon after and completed in 2018.

Enertronica will also deliver all servicing and O&M activities as per the terms of the agreement. The deal consolidates Enertronica Group’s backlog for 2018 – something that the company says will “set the yardstick” for its PV division ahead of next year’s budgetary planning.

Elettronica Santerno, which was purchased by Enertronica Group, has obtained 60 MW of orders so far in 2017, and is eyeing some 200 MW in 2018.

“The Enertronica Group is now achieving outstanding results,” said Enertronica SpA CEO Vito Nardi. “The job is not yet finished and we are still focused on the construction of a strong backlog supporting the targets set in our business plan.”

Last month, Enertronica won a €10 million, 27 MWp supply contract in the U.S., building upon an earlier 50 MW engineering contract secured in the country at the beginning of the year.
