Siemens Energy will build a state-of-the-art combined cycle power plant on a turnkey basis in Ostiglia in Lombardy. The plant will make a significant contribution to reducing CO2 emissions in Italy, thanks to its high efficiency and low CO2 emissions compared with coal- or older gas-fired power plants. It will also be capable of reliably balancing the fluctuating feed-in from renewables like wind and solar power plants to the grid. The project is being executed in a consortium with Italian engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) companies Fata S.p.A. and Demont s.r.l. The utility EP Produzione S.p.A. is owner and operator of the plant.
