Works on Tuscan district heating project under way

Enel Green Power has started work on a geothermal district heating project in Piancastagnaio, near Siena in Tuscany, Italy.

The system will be built in the industrial area of the municipality to provide heating to the companies located in “La Rota” and will help companies to greatly reduce the cost for the use of heat as well as contribute to environmental sustainability.

The project grew from a collaboration between the Municipal Administration of Piancastagnaio and Enel Green Power

The work should be completed by Autumn of 2017 and the investment by Enel Green Power in the project is about EUR 1.5 million.

The district heating network of “La Rota” supplements the heat system already present in Pomarance, Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, Maritime Monterotondo, Montieri, Monteverdi Maritime, Radicondoli (under construction) and Santa Fiora.
