Etrion has selected Phoenix Solar for the construction of a 2.6MW solar power plant near Nettuno in the Lazio region of Italy.

The company will design, construct and provide operations and maintenance services for the solar park.

The facility will be equipped with Trina modules with crystalline, fixed-tilt technology and SMA inverters, and is expected to generate 3.5 million kWh of electricity per year.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by 31 August 2011.

The first power sales from the project under the Italian feed-in-tariff regime will commence from the fourth quarter of this year.
