ABB to build 24 MW solar power plant in Italy

ABB has bagged a $50m order to construct a 24 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant for Phenix Renewables in Lazio, Italy.
 
The Swiss firm will be responsible for the design, engineering, erection, civil works and commissioning of the plant. The plant is based on single-axis trackers, which precisely follow the position of the sun to position PV panels at the best angle for maximum energy production.

The company will also construct a 150 kV substation equipped with a monitoring and control system to facilitate integration of the electrical power generated by the solar panels into the grid. The PV panels will be supplied by the Norwegian company Renewable Energy Corporation in consortium with ABB.
