With over 1.17 MW, 74 dual-axis, high efficiency solar trackers each with 168 Concentrix ™ photovoltaic modules, together with two central inverters of 500 kW each to guarantee a reliable power grid; these will produce enough electricity for 300 houses and should compensate the emission of more than 125 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year. These are the numbers of the photovoltaic system of Santa Lucia, Belpasso, in the province of Catania, installed by REGRAN, the Sicilian company and a leader in both engineering services for large PV systems and the construction of (all inclusive) systems to generate energy from renewable sources.
The realization of the Belpasso plant is, as a matter of fact, the largest biaxial photovoltaic system in Italy, and its installment was carried out by REGRAN. The plant was built using the system of the French company Soitec, who also owns the utility. “With the installation in Belpasso, REGRAN has confirmed its achievement of important development objectives and partnerships with leading European businesses,” said Marco Anfuso, CEO of the Sicilian company,confirming that the choice of Soitec for REGRAN represents a starting point. “The technology in the renewable energy field is evolving rapidly. For this reason, in order to maintain our leadership position in southern Italy, we must continue to invest in research and development and strengthen partnerships with key players in the market.
