Vienna/Jesi, 09 August 2022: The photovoltaic project developer CCEN, headquartered in Jesi, Italy, can continue to dynamically expand its local business
activities. Based on its core business of open space development, the group builds PV plants or prepares their building permits throughout Italy.
CCEN is a joint venture of Clean Capital Energy from Austria and enernovum from Germany.
Go-ahead for the construction of the 41 MW PV plant in Montalto di Castro
As developer and project manager, CCEN has set up a PV plant with a capacity of 41 MWp in Montalto di Castro, which can cover the annual electricity demand for around 20,000 households. For the construction of the plant, CCEN was able to sign an installation contract with the Italian company COMAL. COMAL SpA is a specialist in the construction of large-scale ground-mounted plants in Italy. The Montalto di Castro PV power plant in the province of Viterbo is owned by CCE Holding and is the first plant to be realised in this constellation.
Further building permits in the environs of Rome
After a lengthy preparatory phase, the building permit for an agri-PV plant with a capacity of 43.5MWp was recently granted in Bomarzo. Agri-PV plants enable the dual use of agricultural land for agricultural cultivation and electricity generation.
In Bomarzo, sheep breeding and solar power generation are combined, which brings decisive advantages for both sides: on the one hand, the sheep take care of the greenery, and on the other hand, the PV panels provide the animals with restful shade in an otherwise barren landscape. The plant is the first of its kind in the province of Viterbo, north of Rome.
Within the last few weeks, CCEN was able to conclude two further construction permits for the PV projects Ardea in an industrial area in the metropolitan region of Rome with a nominal capacity of 5 MW and for the Santa Lucia project with a nominal capacity of 13.917 MW.
Thanks to the many years of experience of the Italian team, the successful completion of the approval procedures was achieved in a manageable amount of time. Sandro Esposito, General Manager of CCEN Italy: “Developing four new PV plant projects in a short time is a great success for us. In particular, the Lazio region north of Rome is increasingly becoming a strong, central region for renewable energy production. The four newest plants alone save the planet almost 63,000 tonnes of CO2 annually, which corresponds to the CO2 compensation of approx. 700,000 trees. We are pleased to be able to contribute to the energy turnaround with our open space development.
