A Polish utility and power generator will partner up to finance and build two major district heating power projects in that nation.
The management board of PGE Energia Ciepla and the Wroclaw Combined Heat and Power Plant Group Kogeneracja signed three agreements with the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOSiGW). The deal co-finances construction of combined heat and power (CHP) plants in Siechnice and Zgierz.
Both projects are designed to move away from coal fuel in the heat generation process at PGE locations. The construction of the new Czechnica CHP plant in Siechnice will replace an existing coal-fired CHP facility by 2024, according to the announcement.
Czechnia CHP’s unit will be gas and steam combined, with a peak load boiler house and a heat accumulator. CHP units deliver both electricity and heating for home use or industrial processes.
