The new Codalonga power station in the Venetian Dolomites was completed in what is considered a record-breaking construction period of just 5 months.
The plant belongs to the portfolio of the German TÜV-certified energy transition business Green City Energy and has been producing clean energy for approximately 500 homes since November 2017. The plant was designed and equipped to produce 450 kW with a modern Tschurtschenthaler-built 4-jet Pelton turbine. The Codalonga plant is a high-pressure hydropower station that harnesses the energy of the eponymous river, Torrente Codalonga. The new green power facility has now been producing electricity efficiently for around a year, aiming to feed 1.7GWh/year into the public 20-kV grid to supply around 500 homes with electricity. The Italian Eco-power Law ensures the power produced earns € 0.219 /kWh.
