Milazzo power station originally provided electricity to the grid only, despite close proximity to La Raffineria di Milazzo (RAM) refining plant. It underwent upgrades from 2018-2019 to increase its efficiency and ability to supply electricity and steam to the refinery and excess power to the grid.[1][2]

There have been reports since stricter air quality standards were approved in 2018 that the refinery may shut down due to an inability to comply.[3]
