Chievolis hydroelectric power plant (PN)

Chievolis hydroelectric power plant (PN)

The five facilities are part of an impressive work of hydraulic engineering, and they harness the power of the waters of the Meduna stream and its tributaries, which flow back at the Tauriano hydraulic irrigation junction, after being turbined in the Istrago power plant.  Tauriano feeds the flood irrigation canal network, as well as powering more hydroelectric power plants belonging to other producers. By jointly operating the five facilities, Edison can optimise the production of electricity while ensuring respect of the environment.
