Fiume Santo

The coal-fired power plant is situated in the north west of Sardegna region, in the Sassari province. Spread over an area of 153 hectares on the Gulf of Asinara, the plant is considered, thanks to its net installed capacity of approximately 600 MW, to be one of the most important industrial facilities in northwestern Sardinia.
Since 1983 the plant is controlled by a monitoring network around the station for measuring ground-level pollutants (sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides and particulates). The plant is also allowed to burn biomass in co-combustion in the existing coal sections.
