Cluj sees biomass cogeneration venture

2012-09-17 14:56:35

Romanian-owned Romita Green Energy will build what is said to be one of largest cogeneration plants based on biomass both in Romania and southeast Europe. Located in Rascruci, Cluj county, the new plant will see a total investment of 32.5 million Euro.
The new biomass cogeneration plant in Cluj will have an input of 40 MW, of which 66 per cent thermal energy and 33 per cent electricity. �This will result into ten MW of electricity and 20 MW thermal energy,� Ionel Oros, general manager of the company told The Diplomat.
Funds for the investment are split, according to the general manager. About 17.5 million Euro comes from European funds, while 15 million Euro is the company�s seed money. The new plant will be located in Rascruci, not far from the Tetarom III Industrial Park. Stretching over 22,000-sqm, the location is considered of strategic importance. �Rascruci has great potential for agricultural biomass, and with Tetarom III Industrial Park nearby we can capitalize on our thermal agent. Besides, it will be built outside the populated area to avoid pollution,� Oros added.
To produce energy from renewable sources, the plant will annually use 120,000 tonnes of wood biomass and derivatives (scrap wood for heating, sawdust, tree branches, shrubs and straws).
Construction is scheduled to begin, with works planned to last for about 18 months, said Oros, adding the investment will create in excess of 50 new jobs.
The biomass cogeneration plant in Cluj is one of the most ambitious environmental projects so far, on a market where 65 per cent of all Romanian renewable energy comes from biomass, followed by wind power (17 per cent) and solar power (13 per cent)
The new plant joins already operational cogeneration plant in Radauti, Suceava county, an investment of 20 million Euro from Austrian-based Schweighofer Holzindustrie. The Radauti plant has a total capacity of 22 MW, of which 17 MW is thermal power and five MW is electricity.
Another project in the making is a 100 million Euro investment by the Valcea County Council in two high-efficiency cogeneration plants. CET Govora will operate both plants, one of which is scheduled for completion in four years and produce a total of 4.6 MW electricity and 18 MW thermal power per plant, following a total investment of 22.5 million Euro. The second plant, valued at 80 million Euro, will boast an electric power of 120 MW.
