A significant step towards
the ecological transition

The 32.5 MW district heating plant, produces thermal energy in the form of steam and hot water. The great advantage of the district heating network is that energy is produced in a single thermal power plant, with undeniable environmental benefits. The network conveys steam for the operation of production site systems and high-temperature hot water to domestic and industrial users.

Plant operation

The Enomondo thermal power plant, which operates on spent marc, prunings from the maintenance of green areas, secondary solid fuels, and coarse fraction, produces steam at high pressure (50 bar) and high temperature (480°C). This steam feeds a turbine capable of generating up to 13.7 MW of electrical power with an average renewability of around 65%.
Some of the steam, at 3.5 bar and 140°C, is tapped from the intermediate stage of the turbine and supplies the district heating plant. It is used as is to meet the process heat needs of the Caviro Extra plant or to produce hot water at 90°C. It supplies various industrial, commercial, and domestic users via a 1.200-metre pipe network.

The urban district heating network

Various domestic, commercial, and industrial users have been connected to the district heating system, including the well-known Formula 1 racing team Alpha Tauri.

Each delivery is equipped with the latest generation of meters, with readings available in real time via the web portal. This choice allows users to monitor consumption and Enomondo to quickly check the substations and take action in case of anomalies.

The environmental benefits of the district heating plant are considerable, starting with the fuels used. In fact, thermal energy is produced from scraps, with the dual benefit of reducing costs and mitigating environmental impacts compared to the use of other sources. In particular, the scraps consist mainly of renewable materials, reducing climate-changing emissions.
