The power plant will cover the plant demand for electricity, heating and cooling and will also supply the district heating system, which Alto Garda Servizi will be installing for the Riva council.

ABB has been assigned to execute the electro-instrumental part of the power plant in an €8 million contract assigned by Sadelmi, the main EPC contractor for the project.

ABB will be supplying the substations for connecting to the grid system, the power and distribution transformers, medium and low voltage electrical boards, field instruments (ProfiBus), DCS, electrical protection. Also included for delivery is a fume analysis system. Together with Sadelmi, ABB is also responsible for the engineering of all the electrical lots, commissioning and DCS maintenance and instrumentation.

The power plant, designed, supplied and built by Sadelmi is in total worth about €54 million. Consisting of a high performance co-generation combined cycle, the plant will be completed by exchangers, heat pumps and boilers for the district heating system.

Commissioning of the project is planned for the summer of 2008. The district heating system will be installed during later stages and is expected to be in operation by 2012.
