River Esino weir


Project review

This SHPP is located in Genga town (comune of province of Ancona) in the Italian region of the Marche. This SHPP of derivation type is using hydro potential of the existing weir structure on the river Esino with the total output 750 kW.

The exploited river Esino is one of the major rivers of the Marche Region, interested along its course by many other hydropower plants, built since the first half of twentieth century both by national energy utilities and local private or public entities.

The turbines are horizontal tubular double regulated S-Kaplan type. SHPP Genga will be fully automated and remote-operated. This SHPP includes complete reconstruction of the existing weir and construction of the new hydropower plant.
