STEAG will construct a new solar park in Italy

For KGAL, a 17MW plant is being built on a disused quarry site.

For the investor KGAL, STEAG Solar Energy Solutions (SENS) has announced plans for a 17MW solar park in Italy on the site of a disused quarry.

The facility in Emilia Romagna will be operational in the next months and will provide roughly 25 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of green power per year to the region.

The region, which receives up to 10 hours of sunlight every day, is a perfect site for solar energy generation, according to SENS.

The Italian subsidiary SENS Italia is in charge of the project’s implementation.

From the first negotiation through the end of the contract, the project was completed in a “record-breaking” four weeks.

The project will begin construction in the first quarter of 2022.

SENS Italia will continue to work on the project as a project developer and EPC partner until the end of the year.

This implies that the solar professionals at SENS’ Italian affiliate not only conceive the proposal, but also oversee the solar park’s full construction and subsequent operation.

Monitoring and feeding renewable energy into the regional power grid, as well as subsequent operation and maintenance services, are all included.

“We are again thrilled with the excellent and exceptionally swift preparation by the SENS team,” said Michael Ebner, managing director of sustainable infrastructure at KGAL Investment Management.
