Valutazione del potenzIale Geotermico delle regiOni ConveRgenza
Evaluation of geothermal potential of the regions of Southern Italy
VIGOR, a project that stems from an operational agreement between the MSE - DG
ENRE and CNR - DTA of the POI in the "Renewable Energy and Energy Saving
2007/2013", which aims to identify and implement measures to expand the potential
to be exploited geothermal energy on the territory of Campania, Calabria, Puglia
and Sicily.
Increase the share of energy
consumed from geothermal
sources, including both the high
temperature for the production
of electricity, and the use of
innovative technologies

Italian Station Mario Zucchelli
Zucchelli Station is located in Terra Victoria, Ross Sea. It has a surface of more than
2.000 m2. It is able to lodge up tp 100 persons and it has an airport on marine ice,
operational until November, three helipads and a number of laboratories and automatic
installations for scientific research and telecommunications.
