The coal that is to be used will be transported direct to the plant by ship. The installation is designed to be able to process locally produced biomass in addition to burning coal. As of late 2012 that plant was passing through the approval procedure.
In June 2012 the Italian Presidency of the Council of Ministers has signed the environmental impact assessment for the Saline project. The plant is to have two units at 660 MW capicity each.
