IBC Solar AG has set up a photovoltaic (PV) power plant and connected it to the public electricity grid in just 49 days. The system was built on the outskirts of Maniago, Northern Italy, on an area covering 140,000 square meters. The solar park provides nominal power of about 5,000 kilowatt peak (kWp).

Work began at the end of July 2012, IBC Solar in Italy completed construction of its second largest PV power plant in just seven weeks. The plant was therefore finished two weeks ahead of schedule. As the general contractor, IBC Solar was responsible for all of the technical planning, procurement of materials, and completion of the project. A total of 21,189 modules with a nominal rating of 235 watt peak each and 321 inverters were installed. The solar park produces about 6 million kilowatt hours of environmentally friendly solar power per year, enough to supply 1,500 Italian households and save 3,300 tons of harmful CO2 emissions.

"We commissioned the Maniago project in record time, thereby demonstrating our high level of competence and extensive expertise", said a delighted Rudolf Sebald, who is in charge for project business at IBC Solar. "Environmentally friendly energy generation using renewable energy sources is an investment into the future, as electricity production based on fossil fuels is becoming more and more expensive. Projects like the solar park in Maniago help to arm ourselves against this rising costs."
