Poggi Enhances Capabilities with Photovoltaic System


A network connected photovoltaic system, with a unit capacity of 394.52 kWp was recently installed at Poggi Trasmissioni Meccaniche S.p.a. The system, connected to the network and installed on the roof of the company, consists of 1,409 modules of 280 W and, according to the appraisal made by SIAT technicians, will have a production capacity of 459,853 kWh/year. This will allow Poggi Trasmissioni Meccaniche S.p.a. to reach a significant energy saving and to consequently devote larger resources for research in the field of transmission parts. This activity has always distinguished the company through the design of leading edge solutions, capable of bringing innovation to the sector. Current examples of this capability are P-drive, a range of low-noise and high-performance synchronous pulleys and belts and the P-gear concept, motion transmission system with non-contact gears, applied in the field of bevel gearboxes and reducers.

"We are very proud of the project," said Andrea Poggi, president of the company. "The investment in photovoltaics reflects a radical commitment to sustainability, a responsibility towards the environment that will continue to characterize our history also in the coming years through choices and strategic decisions aimed at maximizing the use of renewable resources and energy."
