The CHP system is intended to boost efficiency and stability at the plant, which provides water and electricity to Arad City in the west of the country.

The hybrid thermal and electrical cogeneration system combines gas generators with batteries to provide low emission ancillary services. It comprises a total of total 43MW of power: 21 MW of gas via 14 generators, with a further 20 MW of thermal energy derived from the plant’s operations, supported by an additional 2-MW lithium-ion battery capacity.
