Italy: Consortium Formed to Build 5 MW Binary Cycle Geothermal Power Plant

ENGIE, Storengy and Graziella Green Power join together for the first geothermal plant in Europe with innovative "zero emissions" technology (News Release)

On January 31, 2018, a Development Agreement was signed between the Italian energy firm Graziella Green Power and the global energy player ENGIE, through its subsidiaries Storengy and ENGIE Italia, starting a cooperation to realize an innovative binary cycle geothermal plant, located in Castelnuovo Val di Cecina (Tuscany Region, Italy).

The project, whose main works are set to begin in 2019, consists in developing, building and operating a geothermal power plant of 5 MWe net capacity. It will be a zero-emission plant thanks to an innovative solution: after generating electric power, the previously extracted geothermal fluid will be re-injected in the same reservoir together with non-condensable gases (CO2 and others), sustaining a production cycle without atmospheric emissions.
