The energy of women

“Being the first woman to run an Enel power station makes me very proud, but it also brings great responsibilities. The Coghinas plant has all it takes to make further fundamental steps in view of its 100 years at the service of Italy”

– Anna Bassu, Head of the Coghinas Plants Unit at Enel

After her studies at the faculty of energy and nuclear engineering at the Polytechnic University of Turin, in 2014, Anna Bassu joined Enel to deal with safety and environment in Sondrio. Now she will face the challenges of the plant on Lake Coghinas, halfway between about Sassari and Olbia, all related to the complete overhaul conducted last December by the Enel Sardinia Hydro Business Unit with the support of the units of the O&M Hydro supply chain.

At the end of the works which lasted six months, the plant is now able to produce 70,000 megawatts a year for 25,000 families, while cutting carbon dioxide emissions by about 45,000 kilograms.
An all women’s challenge.

“I have always been fascinated by the world of energy, by the idea of being able to study innovative solutions to reduce fuel consumption and improve the efficiency of energy processes, in addition to the desire to discover new places. The Coghinas plant finally offers me a highly competitive environment where I can put my skills to the test”
