GreenIT, Galileo sign 140 MW Italian PV contract

Plenitude and CDP Equity JV GreenIT has signed an agreement with Galileo for eight solar projects totalling 140MW, across three regions in Southern, Central and Northern Italy.

The beginning of the plants’ operational phase is scheduled within the timeframe of the 2023-2027 Industrial Plan approved last April by GreenIT.

This forecasts total investments of €1.7bn (including capital already committed) with the goal of reaching an installed capacity of 1000MW.

The initiative is in line with GreenIT's strategy, which also includes the development and construction of greenfield plants, the construction of authorised projects.

The strategy also includes the repowering of operational plants at the end of their life cycle with the aim of extending and enhancing their production capacity, and the development of offshore wind projects.

GreenIT is an Italian renewable energy JV founded in 2021 by Plenitude (Eni, 51% ownership) and CDP Equity (CDP Group, 49% ownership).

Paolo Bellucci, chief executive of GreenIT and head of renewable business Italy at Plenitude said: "We are excited about this agreement with Galileo which, thanks to its internationally recognised experience in the sector, will contribute to the development of GreenIT's portfolio through technologically advanced projects. This transaction is in line with the company's mission and its objectives to develop, build and operate plants for the production of energy from renewable sources in Italy."

Ingmar Wilhelm, chief executive of Galileo, added: "We are very pleased with this forward-looking agreement with GreenIT. The quality of the portfolio of projects developed by Galileo will find a home in GreenIT, a company with all the right characteristics to take care of its construction and operation. In Italy, Galileo is developing a further pipeline of onshore and offshore renewable projects accounting for a grand total of more than 2000MW in the country. Efficient synergies with such high-calibre partners like GreenIT can be strong propellers for the further expansion of our activities across Europe."
