Emerson (News - Alert) recently announced that they had been awarded a contract to supply power inverter technology to one of the leading solar energy developers in Europe. Based on the agreement with Euro Projects, Emerson will now offer utility-scale power inverters for two adjacent solar power plants that are situated in the municipality of Villaperuccio in Sardinia, Italy.
Emerson’s power inverters will be responsible for converting DC power from solar arrays into AC power, which gets placed directly on the electric grid and gets used by homes and businesses. The Sardinia plants together will produce over 10 megawatts of solar energy and will be monitored and managed through Emerson’s state-of-the-art inverter management system.
In a release, Marco Lupini, President and Owner of Euro Projects, said, “We have a long-standing relationship with Emerson, so when this multi-array project came across my radar, Emerson was an obvious choice. It is so important for us to have ongoing assurance, and Emerson’s strong financial stability and dependable, long-term warranty service capabilities were attractive to us. We firmly believe that working with Emerson helps position our company as a leader among alternative energy programs globally.”
From July 2011, the Villaperuccio project has been fully operational and generates sufficient power to sustain close to 3,200 homes. Euro Projects is responsible for financing, developing and managing the entire project.
Mark Bulanda, who serves as global leader for Emerson’s solar and wind energy initiatives, said, “The Euro Projects plants are another example of Emerson’s commitment to generating renewable energy. We are pleased to be working with them, and we are happy to have this opportunity to supply critical technology to some of the largest and most innovative solar projects in Italy.”
