Fortum’s first CHP plant in Lithuania operational

Finnish power utility Fortum has inaugurated a new waste-to-energy combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Lithuania.



With an energy efficiency approaching 90 per cent, the new power plant is fuelled by both municipal and industrial waste, as well as biomass.

Its production capacity is 20 MW of electricity and 50 MW of heat, but is also equipped with flue-gas condensers, which can recovery an extra 15 MW of heat at peak demand times.

On an annual basis the plant will provide 400 GWh of heat for the city of Klaipeda’s district heating network, and 140 GWh of electricity, which is fed into the national grid.
