Bielefeld. a+f GmbH is further building upon its market position in Italy. The Würzburg enterprise has once again received a major order for the "SunCarrier" to a total value of Euro 36.0 million. On behalf of a German investor, a+f is constructing eight "SunCarrier" solar parks in Foggia (Apulia region) over an area of 33 hectares - this is equivalent to the size of about 46 football pitches.
The output installed allows supplying 3,800 4-person households with electricity annually.
"The Italian market continues to prove to be successful and promising”, says Thomas Petsch, managing director of a+f GmbH. The GILDEMEISTER enterprise will expand its activities in Italy and is already involved in negotiations for other projects. According to Petsch, "our main focus is currently directed towards southern Europe. Although we will shortly tackle the growing US market". In India a+f will construct individual "SunCarrier" plants. In order to make optimum use of the sun’s power in regions close to the equator - in particular in the Middle East -the "SkyCarrier" tracking system has been developed. A reference unit can currently be found in Dubai.
In implementing its international "SunCarrier" market strategy, a+f GmbH is able to take advantage of GILDEMEISTERs’ worldwide comprehensive sales and service network.
