Today the plant, a project managed by Deutsche Bank, was officially commissioned in Torre Santa Susanna, Apulia.

The Ideematec safeTrack systems were chosen specifically for their suitability for difficult terrain. The subsoil on the 19 hectare site in Southern Italy predominantly consists of tufa. With concrete not being an option, the engineers at Ideematec had to develop a customised foundation pipe customised for the site which was secured via ramming.

Ideematec was responsible not only for supplying the tracking systems but also for installing them. Since temperatures in the area can be extreme, the tracking systems had to be pre-assembled in halls. Once fitted with PV modules, the tracking systems were transported to the final site in small trucks.

Sold as a turnkey system to an unnamed investor, the large-scale photovoltaic plant in the solar growth country Italy is set to supply solar electricity to 3,300 four-person households for the next 20 years or more.
