Zabrze CHP, commissioned in 2018, is Fortum’s newest plant in Poland. It is a multi-fuel plant using refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and coal. It can also be fueled by biomass.

The plant produces electricity for the national grid and heat for some 70 000 households in the cities of Zabrze and Bytom.

It replaced outdated, purely coal-fired units in Zabrze and Bytom, enhancing the two cities’ energy production efficiency and contributing to emission reductions.

Its production capacity amounts to 225 MW in fuel.
