project name Santa Lucia

Located in the Belpasso municipality in the Catania province in Sicily, the 1,17 MWp CPV Power Plant is the first utility-scale power plant in Italy with Concentrix™ technology from Soitec. It generates enough electricity to supply approximately 300 homes and is expected to offset more than 125 tons of carbon-dioxide emissions per year. The CPV Power Plant consists of 74 CPV Systems along with two central inverters of 500 kW each to ensure reliable power distribution to the Grid. Fully owned and operated by Soitec, the CPV Power Plant supplies electricity to Enel, Italy’s largest power company. Local Italian construction companies provided Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services for the CPV Power Plant.
