The Coré hydroelectric power plant is located between the two Marzotto factories in Maglio di Sopra and Valdagno. The water for this plant was not taken from the Agno river or any of its tributaries, but it was water drained from the power plant located further upstream (Maglio).
According to the 1898 Wool Mill project, a shunt channel of about 500 meters (partly in a trench, partly in a tunnel and partly on the open-air canal bridge) would convey the water to a small loading tank located above the engine building, from which a short forced conduct would feed water to a Francis turbine (built by the company engineer A. Riva Monneret & C. from Milan in 1898). With respect to this, it is worth to mention an agreement between the woolen mill and the Consortium of Roggia di Novale following damage incurred by the latter due to the fact that water was not returned from the Maglio power station to Agno as it was transferred to the Coré power plant. The company Marzotto eventually agreed to solve the problem sending a small portion of the water flowing to the Coré plant into the canal of Novale “by means of an iron sheet metal pipe suspended on stone pillars and a trellis beam, crossing the Agno river”. A comfortable, yet unsafe passageway on the Agno river: the nearby Ponte Briscola.
In the following decades, another important building with connections to both water and wool would be erected near the Coré plant. In 1934, a water purification plant intended for industrial washing of large patches of fabric was built a short distance away with the purpose of enhancing the washing process and improving quality in fabric dyeing.
The power plant is not currently in operation.
