The production plant includes two gas turbines groups of 125 MW. The plant also includes assistance and service technological systems for equipment and personnel. The energy produced is fed into the grid at 150 kV with a local connection to Terna's power station.
In recent years, with the decline in consumption and growth of renewable energy, there has been a drastic reduction in the need for intervention from the so-called “peak" facilities and the Authority for the National Electricity System reduced to almost zero the request for production at Larino.
The plant became operational in 1992. In the early 2000 groups 1 and 2 were declared unavailable without producing, but following the critical situation of the summer of 2003 in the electricity sector, Enel made them available again starting from 2003 ( group 2) to 2004 (group 1).
Visiting Larino you can learn about more than three thousand years of history. The city was founded in the thirteenth BC by the ancient Italic people of Frentani, and there is no historical period that does not have a monument or a witness in Larino.
The Roman amphitheater, the medieval towers and villas, the Cathedral in the Gothic-Romanesque style, as well as the ducal palace of the Norman era testify a path through the centuries rich in events which suffered a major trauma with the earthquake of October 2002. Larino was in fact one of the towns most affected, with damaged houses and monuments and deep mark on the city.
The olive trees and the parcuozz, ancient forests of oak characteristics of the frentana area, mark the landscape of the territory that also binds its economy to agriculture and livestock. Among the typical products of the Molise a prominent place is given to the "Gentile di Larino", a variety of oil, which represents a third of the production sector of the region, and led the municipality in the province of Campobasso to promote the establishment of the National Association City of oil.
