Poland’s gas monopoly PGNiG is to shut down its Warsaw-based combined heat and power plant EC Zeran on 7 September after a fire broke out a day earlier and injured one of the plant’s workers.
“The plant is working at minimum capacity right now and it will be turned off completely in a few hours,” spokeswoman Dorota Kraskowska said.
EC Zeran, with a heating capacity of 1,560 MW, is the second-largest source of heat for Poland’s capital after EC Siekierki, also controlled by PGNiG Termika. The plant’s power capacity is 364 MW, which is sold locally.
