Romagna Map

Municipal water supplier Romagna Acque-Societa delle Fonti S.p.A. has awarded contracts for the supply of turbine-generators and other equipment at four micro-hydroelectric power projects in Italy.

Romagna Acque sought bids for the work in January, at which point the company announced it would invest US$2.3 million to begin exploiting assets of its water system to generate renewable energy.

The four small hydropower projects are expected to have a cumulative output capacity of about 575 kW.

Per the award, Sime Energia Srl will provide equipment for the 85-kW Forli and 110-kW Pariolino plants, to be located in Forli and Riccione, respectively.

Meanwhile, R.T.I. fra Ossberger GmbH and Co. will supply equipment for the 110-kW Cappuccini in Cesena and 270-kW Motalbano in San Giovanni.
