Talesun Constructs 14-MW-Solar Park in Italy

High Electricity Yields Continue to Outweigh Feed-In Concerns

(PresseBox) ( München, )
Talesun Solar, a leading international manufacturer of high quality solar modules and cells has concluded a large-scale project in the Calabrian town of Girifalco, Italy. The installation, another 14.3 megawatt of installed capacity, sees the company further expand its presence in the Italian market following the recent successful completion of various major projects, e.g. in San Floro.

Working together with local partners, Talesun implemented a 14.3 MW project in Girifalco, on the southern edge of the Italian peninsula. The international module manufacturer, that specializes in the construction of turnkey photovoltaic plants, required just twenty days, from breaking-ground to full operation The company utilized two types of modules that are particularly well suited to the topographical conditions. The TP 660P covers an area with a capacity of 12.3 MW, while the TP 672P provides the installation with an additional two MW. Both polycrystalline module types are especially durable and resistant to salt-spray - two important criteria for a power-plant that is situated close to the sea, and at the foot of the Serre mountain range.

High Yields Despite an Unsettled Regulatory Environment

A reduction in state support for the sector has seen a slowdown in the further development of the Italian solar-energy market over recent months. However, for Arthur Chien, Vice President at Talesun Solar, Italy's PV sector continues to post important indicators showing underlying strength. "Italy remains, as before, one of Europe's most important photovoltaic markets. Analysts forecast a rise in installed capacity of 2.0 GW for the current year, with the positive trend set to continue for 2014. The implementation of new feed-in legislation is planned for the coming months. Based on the German model, the legislation is expected to lay out fixed price guarantees for electricity generated from solar technology."

Just last year, Talesun successfully installed a 23.8 MW solar park in the neighboring town of San Floro, just 13 kilometers away. The irradiation intensity in Southern Italy is particularly high.

By mounting the module with a 30 to 35 degree southern inclination one would attain yields in excess of 2000 kWk/m², an extremely high level of solar irridation and a guarantee of an optimal electricity yield. This is just one of the reasons why we are confident that we will be building further large-scale installations in the region in the future", explains Chien.
