Wood biomass power plant for simultaneous production of electricity and thermal energy (cogeneration), located in the entrepreneurial zone of the town of Županja, was put into commercial operation after comprehensive technical tests.
The investor is the company Biomass to Energy Županja d.o.o., while the main contractor is the Slavonski Brod company Đuro Đaković Termoenergetska postrojenja d.o.o. (ĐĐ TEP), who designed and built the entire project on a turnkey basis. In addition to the power plant, a wood chips drying plant has been built, which will supply the power plant with dry wood chips, thereby increasing its energy efficiency and that of other customers.
The electrical output of the power plant is 4.93 MW and the maximum thermal power is up to 10 MW. It will burn 55,000 tonnes of biomass annually, supplying about 1,000 households with green energy while saving 33.000 tonnes / year of CO2 emissions.
The biomass boiler and all additional pressure and non-pressure equipment were produced in the own modern production facilities of ĐĐ TEP in Slavonski Brod. The plant is compliant with all EU and Croatian energy regulations and laws, with particular emphasis on low flue gas emissions, which are lower than prescribed values.
This is the fifth such power plant that it has been built by the company ĐĐ TEP in the last 4 years, and the power plant in Virovitica is in the commissioning phase, while the power plants in Karlovac and Količevo (Slovenia) are under construction.
