In 2016 the procedure for the purchase and redevelopment of the thermoelectric plant in Bastardo was launched and is still ongoing. In recent years production has reduced considerably.
Planned in the 1960s as a lignite-fired power station, following the nationalization of electric energy in Italy it was transferred to Enel while still in construction and converted into an oil-fired plant. In 1988 the second conversion to coal occurred and the plant entered into operation with the new configuration in 1991.
The fortress and the churches of Gualdo Cattaneo mark the artistic and historical profile of the town that over the centuries, thanks to its strategic location between Foligno and Spoleto, was at the centre of conflict and strife but also of an important architectural development.
The castles are a fascinating attraction for tourism and offer the possibility of a real journey through time that begins in the era of ancient Rome until today.
Hills and villages are full of olive oil mills and wineries. Gualdo Cattaneo is a must for those who want to discover the “Strada del Sagrantino wine” and cuisine that was born around the truffle, extra virgin olive oil but also the cultivation of nuts.

The two phases of the Procedure will be presented in detail in the document “Call for expressions of interest for the redevelopment and purchase of the Coal Thermal Power Plant situated in the Municipal District of Gualdo Cattaneo, Province of Perugia owned by Enel” published on this website.
The expressions of interest must be received by 31st March 2017, at 12h00 pm and are subject to a fit assessment as to whether the persons considered suitable for admission to the second phase of the Procedure for the presentation of the project proposals meet the requirements.
Following the assessment, Enel will notify the admission to the second phase of the Procedure for the presentation of project ideas and corresponding binding site purchase offers to the persons who are deemed qualified.
The proposed project proposals will be subject to a fit assessment taking into account the requirements established in the Procedure aiming at enhancing the innovative and sustainable projects under a social, economic and environmental viewpoint, with a special focus on the opportunities and needs of the local community.
Following the selection of the project ideas Enel will start negotiation with the persons who have submitted the relevant binding site purchase offers in order to achieve the sale of the Plant area.
