Częstochowa CHP plant
Zabrze CHP plant
Miechowice CHP plant
In 2010 one of Europe's most modern combined heat and power plants was opened in Czestochowa. The new facility stands on the site of an old heat plant that used to be one of several plants heating Czestochowa. That old plant’s operation has been replaced, and is only utilised for peak production.Czestochowa’s new CHP is one of the most modern and effective in Poland, and it meets the high standards for safety, efficiency, and low emissions that Fortum has. The production capacity is 120 MW of heat and 60 MW of electricity, and the plant utilizes up to 35% biomass in its production. This is a big step towards cleaner energy in the region and the country.CHP is the main source of heat in the city of Czestochowa, which means that the city benefits from a more efficient way of producing district heating than it previously had. For the inhabitants this means cleaner air with less emission and a more reliable supply of heat. The use of biomass is not only reducing the emissions of fossil CO2, but also provide new opportunities for the region in the production of biofuel.
Fortum Zabrze CHP is the oldest of Fortum's plant in Poland. The power plant has been in operation since December 1897. The basic fuel fired in four steam boilers is hard coal from local coal mines in Upper Silesia. The plant co-fires also about 10% of biomass. Environmental impacts of production have been reduced by highly efficient electrostatic precipitators with Polish installation of dry desulfurization (efficiency of 30%) and de-NOx (efficiency of 50%). The production capacity of CHP Zabrze is 73,9 MW of electricity and 475 MW of heat and that covers the heating demand of households in Zabrze and part of Ruda Śląska as well as the process steam demand of a number of companies around the plant in Zabrze. The annual sales volume is around 150 GWh of power and 500 GWh of heat energy.
Fortum Bytom CHP was built between 1950 and 1954. The plant has replaced the former power station built during the Second World War by the Germans. The production capacity of CHP Miechowice is 372,7 MW of heat and 55 MW of electricity. CHP Miechowice is currently the primary source in heat for citizens of Bytom.
