The Polish heat production company PGE Lublin have been on a study tour to Denmark from 7-10th November. DBDH arranged the program including visits to a number of Danish district heating utilities fuelled by biomass.
PGE Lublin’s background for this visit was to gather information that could be useful for a planned expansion project. The company plans to build a new biomass fired CHP plant, equally divided between straw and wood and with a generation capacity of 29MW electricity and 45MW heat power. The delegation had meetings with Danish organizations that showed how to prepare and finance such a project, as well as meetings with relevant suppliers that could tell about the advantages and disadvantages involved.
Construction of the new plant is expected to last for two years and operations are set to commence in the beginning of 2019.
