Sept. 12, 2013 - Martifer Solar has just concluded a rooftop installation for Diffusione Tessile.

The multi-section plant has a combined capacity of 862.25KW and is installed on the rooftops of its industrial unit of Cavriago, province of Reggio Emilia, Emilia Romagna region. The company was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the project, and will be in charge of the Operation and Maintenance services.

The photovoltaic plant is characterized by a complex layout of the surfaces divided in three sections, totaling more than 3.400 polycrystalline modules of Italian production (EL.ITAL.). With a production capacity of 1.060MWh/year, the installation will produce the equivalent to the consumption of about 900 inhabitants and will avoid approximately 700 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

According to Valerio Senatore, General Manager of Martifer Solar in Italy, "This experience is significant in order to confirm the company's ability to operate successfully and efficiently in the industrial segment. The installation was completed in a very short period of time, in spite of the adverse weather conditions during the summer, thanks to the strong daily cooperation between all parties involved. We are proud to work together with an Italian group of undisputed worldwide prestige, with whom we hope to cooperate again in the future."

The plant will benefit from the incentives of the "Quinto Conto Energia" (feed-in tariff systems according to the GSE Register), with the bonus integration linked to the European supply of at least 60% of the components.

"The project is part of a process of attention to the environmental issues that in the last years, for example, has led us to a constant supply of hydropower energy, to which we can now add other renewable sources such as the solar one. The collaboration with Martifer Solar has proved to be successful, allowing us to reach our goal with the quality and timing that we had pre-established", says Antonio Farini, CEO of Diffusione Tessile.
