Enel and Comal a solar shamus plant at the Montalto di Castro power factory
A plant for the manufacturing of solar trackers, the bias that allow photovoltaic panels to acquaint themselves and follow the sun throughout the day, set up inside the Montalto di Castro power factory this is the result of an agreement between Enel and Comal, a company that builds photovoltaic shops and is grounded in the megacity of Viterbo (Lazio).
Comal’s Tracker Sun Hunter plant, for which introductory workshop are set to get underway in the early months of the time, will be located in an area of over square measures, no longer used for the factory’s energy conditioning, and will employ up to 70 workers at maximum affair, generating a implicit occasion also for there-employment of help engaged in colorful conditioning linked to thermoelectric shops being decommissioned in northern Lazio. The end is to produce wholly Italian trackers to support a photovoltaic energy product of over to 1 GW per time, therefore contributing to the growth of a public renewable energy force chain.
The Montalto di Castro factory is at the center of a major development concentrated on the requirements of the electricity system and the openings created by the energy transition, a plan that will see the creation of a new energy mecca integrated between enterprise in the energy sector, developed by Enel, and new business results developed by third parties. The action is part of the Enel Group’s broader commitment to the new development of the spots of its rejected shops, following a redevelopment strategy that prioritizes the using of being structures and the integration of new renewable product shops and storehouse systems, combined with new business systems in different areas.
The obliteration of decommissioned canvas- fired units is underway at the point. Enel has started the authorization process needed to be suitable to make a new photovoltaic factory on the point which covers an area of about 20 hectares, with a capacity of about 10 MW. Other areas under development (six hectares) will be used to house energy storehouse systems amounting to about 245 MW, therefore making a farther donation to the use of renewable powers and to the stability of the electricity system in this case too, the authorization procedures are formerly underway. In line with the suggestions of Italy’s National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan (PNIEC) and to encourage the country’s exit from coal, repaired turbogas shops which have been made more effective will remain in operation at the Alessandro Volta installation.
In order to complete the development of the point, which will be the largest of the multifunctional energy product installations that Enel is erecting in Italy, farther results are being studied, which are presently the subject of dialogue with original institutions and which will make it possible to work being means and structures, therefore icing positive spin-offs for the area; these include an innovative hydroponic hothouse design, for which specialized and profitable feasibility analyses are presently underway and which will profit from the areas and part of the being installations.
“ The agreement with Comal and the new development of the Montalto di Castro point, offer a concrete demonstration of the positive goods of the energy transition for businesses, for the regions and for the country,” said Luca Solfaroli Camillocci, Head of Enel Green Power and Thermal Generation Italy. “ The righteous circle that brings together the growth of renewable energy sources, the development of a public force chain of sustainable technologies and the exercise of means in a indirect frugality enables the generation of participated value and new openings.”
“ Together with Enel, we’ve embarked on a path that makes the energy transition set out in public and EU programs a reality,” reflected Mayor of Montalto di Castro, Sergio Caci. “ It’s clear how the artificial point of Montalto di Castro is gradationally being converted in agreement with the home. I’m indeed prouder that a original company, which has invested a great deal of energy in photovoltaics and the engineering of photovoltaic rudiments, has decided to make them on point, using an area within the former power station. Comal has amazed us again, after its entry on the Milan stock exchange, it now offers an unknown occasion for development and employment. I would like to thank Guido Paolini who, having had the suspicion to concentrate on youthful people, in addition to serving his company and its workers, is giving a great occasion to our community.”
Alfredo Balletti, CEO of Comal, reflected “ We’re veritably proud of this collaboration with Enel, one of the main players in the energy transition in Italy. As a result of this agreement, the Montalto di Castro power station will be suitable to witness a new artificial season, a benefit that will also fall on the home thanks to the creation of multitudinous new direct and circular jobs. We’d like to thank the Mayor and the Municipal Administration, who have always been willing to support this important artificial redevelopment design, which will make it possible to produce Sun Hunter trackers entirely in Italy, bringing back to Italy the product of bias that until now were being imported from foreign requests. The in- house product of trackers has huge eventuality, with the rearmost installations in 2021 totaling further than 250 MWp.”
