Energy transforms us. Let’s transform energy.
The PLC group is a market leader in the design, installation and maintenance of electrical infrastructures and renewable energy production plants.
Led by PLC S.p.A., the various subsidiaries provide solutions for the production of energy from the entire range of renewable sources: wind, photovoltaic, hydroelectric and bioenergy.
Through its companies, the PLC Group is present in all phases of the renewable energy value chain, from development and design to turnkey construction, up to long-term O&M management. This consolidated presence has allowed PLC to sell its projects to qualified investors, taking care of their complete authorization, turnkey construction and long-term O&M activities.
Today, PLC presents itself as a multi-technology Independent Service Provider with a strong international vocation.
The corporate group has its registered office in Milan, main operating offices in Acerra (Naples) and Castel Guelfo di Bologna (Bologna) and secondary operating offices in Apulia, Lazio, Sicily and Sardinia.
The PLC project was born in 1996 on the initiative of Francesco Esposito. After a long professional experience with the major operators of the Italian electricity market, Esposito founded PLC System in Casandrino (Naples), together with his family’s financing partners.
PLC System establishes itself as one of the main players in the “turnkey” installation of the
BOP (Balance Of Plant) for photovoltaic power plants.
PLC Service was born from a company branch of PLC System, whose core business is represented by the sector of tests on HV equipment, thermography and Global Service.
PLC begins to approach the market as EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction).
PLC Service presents on the Italian market a “turnkey” maintenance service of the “Balance of Plant”, with very high levels of reliability. PLC enters the South African market by building several electrical substations and then expanding in 2013.
Thanks to the introduction of new professional figures, PLC is transformed into a managerial company. A corporate reorganization is launched which leads to the creation of a holding company that controls the various legal entities.
The shares of PLC System and PLC Service are sold by the shareholders to the new holding of the Group: PLC Group S.p.A. In the same year PLC Service Wind was born.
A division specialized in the inverter field was born within PLC Service, with the aim of internally managing activities with a higher technological content. In the same year, PLC System acquires Idroelettrica 2014 S.r.l. and the process for listing on the Italian Stock Exchange is initiated.
PLC S.p.A. acquires 51% of Monsson Operation Ltd. Ireland, a leading international player in the renewable energy market. The following year, PLC S.p.A. acquires all the shares, passing to hold 100% of the company.
PLC S.p.A. completes the purchase of the majority of the share capital of Schmack Biogas S.r.l., confirming the desire to be a leading player in the renewable energy market.
