Zuccato Energia Srl is an Italian SME, with legal seat in Verona, Italy. It is specialized in design, development, manufacture and distribution of system for power production from renewable sources, with particular regard with small-size turbogenerators (up to 500 kWe) based on the Low Temperature Organic Rankine Cycle (LT-ORC), a particular closed-loop thermodynamic cycle  which is ideally suited for the conversion of low/medium temperature (100-200°C) thermal sources into electric power. As designer and builder of its systems, Zuccato Energia can also offer custom-made systems tailored to specific client needs.

Our Technical Team


Our firm is made of a dynamic, innovative team of young engineers who research, develop, supervise and manage each order from quotation to post-sales. All design and creation activities are made by a specialized team of engineers using the latest software and specific programmes for study and analysis as well as numerical and solid modeling. Each unit is tested under nominal operational parameters for 48 hours on a specific testbench under the supervision of our engineers to verify the congruency between design and actual specifications.
The purpose of our technical department is to offer a complete engineering consultancy service both before and after the sale, to realize a plant that fully satisfies the client's needs.

Our Research Activity

Zuccato Energia, a young, highly innovative and progress-oriented firm because of its will to obtain concrete and reliable results, constantly invests own capitals in human resources to feed its R&D department. Universities and high-level Research Centres place the final validation seal on the obtained results, by checking and certifying them. This is the reason we can be proud of holding a number of patents and licenses for our exclusive technologies.
