Construction of a geothermal bath in Santa Fiora in the Province of Grosetto, Italy continues with funding from Enel and heat to come from nearby Bagnore 4 geothermal power plant.

Work continues on the construction of a swimming pool at Santa Fiora in Italy. The bath will be utilising geothermal energy. Nearby is the Bagnore 4 geothermal power plant by Enel. (location)

“Our geothermal pool is being built by Enel, the wooden spans of the roof have been assembled and the works are proceeding: an important structure for sport and leisure will soon be a reality at the service of the whole Amiata.” Thus the Municipality of Santa Fiora reports on the progress for the expected sports facility that is taking shape in the locality of Aiole, also very close to the Municipality of Arcidosso.

The structure, as known, is fully financed by Enel green power with an investment of millions of euros: the intervention is the result of the agreement signed by the Municipalities of Santa Fiora and Arcidosso with the company and the Region, on the basis of which undertakes to finance the work and then hand  it over.

With some local opposition the project has been delayed for quite some time, but seems to be move forward now.
