Project name: Hydro Electric Power Station
Location: Aosta Valley, Italy
Company/client: Idroelettrica Arvier Srl
Tratos has supplied 150kV High Voltage (HV) cable for a hydroelectric power station in the Aosta Valley, Italy.
The 18-million-euro 2.5MW power plant will be located amongst the tributaries of Dora Baltea and is one of several power stations already in operation in the region. Ninety nine percent of electricity produced in the Aosta Valley is from renewable hydroelectric sources.
The project is an important construction in the region and includes a unique gallery which itself is architecturally challenging. There are specific environmental protection needs in the project too including low visual impact pipelines which will blend into their surrounding environment.
The power station is expected to be in operation by 2018.
