The cutting-edge technology at the Salisano power plant is our pride and joy.
The water and hydroelectric part of the plant is built "in a cave" by constructing tunnels within the calcareous spur. How does the hydroelectric power plant work? The in-stream plant is one of few in Europe and the world to produce energy by exploiting drinking water from the Peschiera-Capore aqueduct system. The incoming water going towards Rome converges here and mixes before flowing into the two branches of the Peschiera aqueduct system, which supplies the Capital.
