The world’s largest tracking solar plant using Sanyo’s high-efficiency high-output HIT solar PV modules is now operating at Torre Santa Susanna in southeast Italy. The site comprises 32 202 solar modules fitted to solar trackers to maximise power generation. It has an output capability of 7.6 MW and is one of the largest tracking solar plants in Europe.
