ENERTRONICA, a company operating in the field of renewable energy and energy conservation in the design and manufacture of elector-mechanical systems, the leader of the consortium of companies with the company Rossi Impianti Srl, has been awarded the design and construction of an innovative photovoltaic system with energy storage using batteries to be carried out in Eritrea.

The plant, commissioned directly by the Eritrean government and financed by the EU, is in fact a small Smart Grid with which, thanks to the simultaneous and coordinated photovoltaics, batteries, diesel generators and an intelligent interface to the national grid of electricity, it is possible to ensure continuity with the energy needs of the training center and research ERCOE (Eritrean Centre for Organizational Excellence).

The contract, whose value is approximately EUR 1 million, will be implemented in 2015.

The Chief Executive Officer of Enertronica SpA, Eng. Stephen Plocco, commented:

“Enertronica continues to demonstrate capacity planning and operational in areas of high technology and innovation. In the particular case, the job is extremely important because it represents a first step in a highly innovative and it is reasonable to expect important developments, not only in the African market, but also from Europe. The area of the accumulation of electrical energy, and smart grid in general, can lead to a quantum leap in the use of renewable energy sources and non-programmable Enertronica is a candidate to be a key player in the industry. Another source of great satisfaction is dictated by the fact that it has come to this success through a small example of a “network of enterprises” in collaboration with the company Rossi systems and the support of Unindustria. “.
