HEP has constructed two biomass fired cogeneration plants projects, BE-TO Osijek CHP 3 MWe/10 MWt and BE-TO Sisak CHP 3 MWe/10 MWt. The energy market operator will purchase the generated electricity from both power plants in accordance with the tariff as defined by the Ordinance on acquiring the status of eligible electricity producer in the period of 14 years. Operation of such plants contributes to the fulfillment of the national goals harmonized with the EU directives related to the renewable sources and energy efficiency generation.
The consortium for construction of both EUR 35 million worth projects is Đuro Đaković Holding with the partner HOST B.V. from the Netherlands. The construction was financed by the KfW bank credit.
Forest biomass is the energy source for both power plants and its provision is insured by the signed long-term contracts. The construction site was opened in December 2015 and construction of both plants has been finalized in 2016 and 2017. Trial operation, technical inspection of the plant and the procedure for obtaining of the Use-permit were done during 2017.
BE-TO Osijek CHP of 3 MWe electrical capacity and 10 MWt thermal capacity is the forest biomass cogeneration plant project in joint generation of the thermal and electrical energy. The primary purpose of BE-TO Osijek CHP is generation of the process steam for the industrial customers and heat for the district heating system of the City of Osijek. It will have a status of eligible electricity producer for the period of 14 years as the high efficiency renewable source cogeneration plant.
Project construction site is located besides the existing TE-TO Osijek CHP and will be connected to the existing facilities at the site.
BE-TO Sisak CHP of 3 MWe electrical capacity and 10 MWt thermal capacity is the forest biomass cogeneration plant project in joint generation of the thermal and electrical energy. The primary purpose of BE-TO Sisak CHP is generation of the thermal energy for the district heating system of the City of Sisak and process steam for the industrial customers. The power plant will have a status of eligible electricity producer for the period of 14 years as the high efficiency renewable source cogeneration plant.
As part of the investment the main hot water pipeline will be built from the new heating station beside the plant to the existing heating stations of Caprag and Brzaj apart from the construction of the cogeneration plant. The plant's construction location is next to the existing power plant in the framework of the former ironworks in Sisak.
