Enel S p A: ABB chooses Enel X for its carbon neutrality strategy at the Frosinone plant



  • In line with the decision to supply all of the Group’s Italian sites with renewable energy from 2019, ABB has signed an agreement with Enel X to install a photovoltaic plant at the Smart Power plant in Frosinone
  • Once fully operational, the plant will be able to contribute around 30% of the production site’s energy needs.

Rome/Frosinone, June 23rd2022 – A new partnership between ABB, Enel X, Enel’s global business line dedicated to innovative services, and Cogenio, the energy efficiency services platform, has started, with the planned installation of a photovoltaic installation of 1,690 kWp at the ABB plant in Frosinone. The site, like all ABB Group facilities in Italy, is already powered by renewable energy supplied by Enel Energia. The installation of the plant will avoid the emission of more than 820 tons of CO2 in the atmosphere, which is equivalent to the amount absorbed by a forest of about 9,000 trees. Enel X will build and manage the solar park for the duration of the energy performance contract with its partner ESCo Cogenio. As part of the Energy Power Contract formula, the investment for the construction and operation of the power plant is entirely borne by the company ESCo. The customer will only pay for the energy vectors produced by the plant itself, with a lower energy bill than before the works.

“Through our advanced technology solutions in the field of energy efficiency, we offer our customers the opportunity to achieve their ambitious sustainability goals”, said Augusto RaggiDirector of Enel X Italia. “And it is precisely in this area that our partnership with ABB has developed over the years and is now growing with the installation of a photovoltaic power plant which will allow us to electrify part of the consumption of the Frosinone site, one of the company’s largest.. We want to maintain our position as the partner of choice in this sector and today’s agreement is proof of our daily commitment to consolidating this status. »

“This project is part of the sustainable development strategy announced by the ABB group, which envisages the carbon neutrality of its operations by 2030. Our path towards this objective is well traced.” said Massimiliano CifalittiABB Electrification Smart Power Europe Hub Manager. “Last year Frosinone achieved its goal of zero waste sent to landfill. The installation of the photovoltaic power plant is part of a larger plan to build a micro-grid which, thanks to ABB’s power distribution monitoring and optimization technology and a storage system of energy, will increase the energy autonomy of the production site. »

The photovoltaic plant to be built by Enel X will allow ABB to self-produce volumes of energy that will cover approximately 30% of the energy needs of the entire site. Opened in 1969, the Frosinone plant is ABB’s center of excellence for the development and production of low voltage circuit breakers. The 150,000 square meter factory with its 1,000 employees is highly automated and produces more than three million circuit breakers each year. Recognized by the Italian government as a flagship factory, a model for digital


transformation and Industry 4.0 strategies, Frosinone has developed smart, digitized and connected operations, increasing efficiency throughout its value chain.
