Schneider scoops Italian power plant contract

14 September 2010

AES SOLE has set its sights on Italy as the location of a massive photovoltaic power plant. The company selected Schneider Electric as the main EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contractor for the construction, operation and maintenance of the Puglia site.

The photovoltaic power plant will have a yearly power output of 56GWh, which corresponds to the requirements of a town of 40,000 inhabitants, without the 28,000 tons of carbon emissions an equivalent fossil fuel-fired power plant would produce. With a total power of 43MW peak, the park will consist of 600,000 solar panels over 250 acres.

Schneider Electric will implement an integrated, end-to-end solution and will act as the sole contact for plant management for AES SOLE Italia.
