The production facility includes 4 groups, each consisting of gas turbines: turbine powered by natural gas, alternator, air-cooled and rated active power of 88.8 MW, up transformer with a transformation ratio of 15/240 kV.
The plant includes several auxiliary technological equipment, necessary for the production process. The energy produced is fed into the grid at 220 kV, with a connection to the power station "Maddaloni" belonging to Terna.
In recent years, the electricity generated by the gas turbines has reduced significantly due to the lower market demand.
In 2012, following the unfavorable opinion of the Municipality of Maddaloni and the Province of Caserta, the Environment Ministry issued a denial decree regarding the Integrated Environmental Permit to operate the plant, making it unavailable for power generation. Enel in the month of May 2012 filed an appeal before the Regional Administrative Court of Lazio against the AIA decree of denial, but in the meantime it applied safety and preservation measures at the plant, and asked the MISE permission to permanently cease operation at the plant.
The plant became operational in 1977 being used until 2005 with a limited number of hours of operation per year, on average less than the 500 hours / year for each group.
Crafts, services and industry are the most important sectors of the local economy that houses among other things the Interporto Southern Europe Maddaloni-Marcianise, an important logistics hub and continent-wide storage facility. Significant also the presence of farms, of the cement industry, operating in the territory since 1975, and the artisan tradition.
Maddaloni was founded in 826 by the inhabitants of nearby Calatia, who escaped the invasion of the Moors. It experienced its greatest period of prosperity in the eighteenth century and is linked to the progressive history of nearby Caserta.
The castle is the most significant monument of the city along with the National Boarding School Giordano Bruno, which houses the largest eighteenth-century painting in the world (restored in 2007 thanks to the contribution of the American star Tom Cruise) and the seventeenth century minor basilica of Corpus Christi, designed with the contribution of architect Luigi Vanvitelli who also oversaw the construction of the Bridges of the Valley, a hydraulic engineering work which also supplies the fountains of the Palace of Caserta.
