Bonatti Group builds a 58GW/h / year photovoltaic plant for Sorgenia

Carlo Gavazzi Impianti, a subsidiary of Bonatti, has signed a contract with Sorgenia Gemini under which the company will execute on EPC basis (engineering, procurement of materials and construction)  a new photovoltaic plant covering a 40-hectare area adjacent to a former landfill near Grosseto.


The plant will have an installed power of about 30 MW, using solar energy to satisfy the electricity requirements of 22,000 households, thus preventing the release into the atmosphere of over 28,000 tons of CO2 per year. The project involves use of latest-generation products such as double-sided photovoltaic modules, selected to maximise the efficiency of energy production.


Carlo Gavazzi Impianti will be in charge of the design of the plant, working in complete synergy with parent company Bonatti in the procurement of materials and construction phases. The project includes construction of an 8.3 km medium-voltage cable transmission line , supply of an MV/HV step-up transformer (30/132kV - 32/40 MVA), building of a 132kV substation and connection with Enel Distribution  grid.


The collaboration between the two Bonatti Group companies will make it possible to pool the engineering capabilities and know-how in the power industry offered by Carlo Gavazzi Impianti (an historical company in the plant engineering market for electricity generation and distribution, including high voltage) and the construction  and operational capacity of its parent company, Bonatti.


The project has been underway since January 2023 and it is expected to be completed and begin feeding into  the energy grid by spring 2024.


The construction of the new photovoltaic plant in Grosseto marks a milestone for the Bonatti Group and, in particular, for the subsidiary Carlo Gavazzi Impianti, as it strengthens the company’s position in renewables and consolidates its relationship with Sorgenia, a dynamic player and undisputed leader of the current energy transition.



Working at Bonatti means becoming part of dynamic team committed to achieving challenging objectives in international and multicultural contexts.
