The solar PV power plants will be erected in the Marche and Abruzzo regions, between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine Mountains for Viridis Energia, a joint venture between Echidna S.p.A. and La.G.I. S.r.l.
The solar PV projects are expected to be completed this spring.
The order comes in addition to a previous order for the construction of another 3 MWp of solar PV plants located in the Marche region from the same customer.
“In the last fiscal, Siemens received orders for photovoltaic plants with a combined capacity of more than 30 MW from Italy,” says René Umlauft, CEO of the Renewable Energy Division.
“The Italian market is one of the key large-scale PV markets in Europe. This year the market will continue to grow significantly and we want to participate in this growth."
