Location: Cinna Palermo
Wind farm: 10 million kWH
Tratos has supplied Tratos Daedalus for the Surbo photovoltaic field, built in Ciminna, in the province of Palermo, which is the biggest photovoltaic field in Europe. The structure, which became operational at the end of 2008, required an investment of 40 million euros. The plant will have an output of 7.7 MW, approximately 10 million kWh per year, equivalent to the electricity needs of about 4,000 families. Once in operation, the field will save 2,000 tons of oil and reduce the environmental impact of pollutants, preventing the emission into the atmosphere of 6,000 tons per year of carbon dioxide and 13,000 kilograms per year of nitrous oxides, corresponding to the environmental benefits generated by about 6 million square meters of forest.
