Construction of a new power plant based on the steam-gas cycle, able to supply energy and heat to half the city, is planned in Nitra this year. The city consumes 90 megawatt hours per year; the new plant should generate 54 megawatt hours.

The objective of the project is to provide heat and electricity self-sufficiency for the city and to reduce the city’s dependence on a single source. Construction should be financed by a private investor, Mestská Elektráreň Nitra, a.s.

“We recently negotiated with the Nitra central heating company, which is an important partner of the project. When we reach an agreement and sign a contract there will be no obstacles to starting construction administration proceedings and construction can then begin,” Nitra’s mayor Jozef Dvonč said at the end of 2010, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
