The conveying tech­no­lo­gy in Scilla over­comes every chal­lenge

conveying technology for Scilla

Almost 3 km from the port town of Scilla in Calabria, a power plant 320 m higher is generating electricity. This electricity will be supplied to Scilla via a cable routed through the mountain and from there to Sicily via underwater cables. That is why the Roman company Terna Rete Italia S.p.A. is building a tunnel, for pedestrians and vehicles, which is 3 m in diameter and runs from Scilla to the power plant. Marti Technik AG provided the conveying technology for the excavated material of the tunnel: including a vertical belt storage and a tunnel belt which  additionally delineates a curve at a 12 % incline. The plant was commissioned in April 2013.
