Košice builds biomass heating plant

THE SECOND biggest city in Slovakia, Košice, is building a €33 million biomass heating plant but its construction is lagging behind schedule.

THE SECOND biggest city in Slovakia, Košice, is building a €33 million biomass heating plant but its construction is lagging behind schedule.

“The city acted slowly and gave us such difficult conditions that we had to rework the documentation necessary to get a construction licence, Igor Gula of R GES, the company building the plant, told the SITA newswire. “But things have moved forward. We would like to start building the plant in autumn.”
R GES started preparing construction of a biomass heating plant in Bardejov at approximately the same time.

“In contrast to Košice, here the construction has already started,” Gula said.

“In May we want to begin installing the technology and then launch trial operations in October.”
In Košice, the new plant will work as a cogeneration unit in an almost automatic mode. It will require a staff of only six people.

The modern plant will use wood chips as fuel, produce 350,000 GJ of heat and generate 40,000 MWh of electricity annually. Gula believes that the cogeneration unit will consume around 85,000 cubic metres of wood chips each year.
