SANYO Electric Company have completed a solar power plant in the southeast Italy. One of the world’s largest tracking projects the project uses SANYO’s HIT solar modules, which follow the movement of the sun to maximise the surface area of the panel the sun can reach.
SANYO’s role in the project was to provide its highly acclaimed HIT solar modules to the system. The plant is equipped with 32,202 of SANYO’s HIT-235HDE4 solar modules fitted to solar trackers, with a total system size of 7.56MW.
Construction of the plant was completed in December, 2010 and the system was connected to the grid in April, 2011. The power plant was originally started by a consortium led by Deutsche Bank’s Asset Finance and Leasing Renewable Energy Division.
Sanyo say the project has proven the suitability of HIT solar modules for large scale systems through their profitability in long-term investments.
