Athens-based PPC Renewables (PPCR) said the 25 MWe/45 MWth project will be located in Western Macedonia and, when completed, will be Greece’s largest biomass CHP plant.
With the call for partners issued in December 2017, PPCR aimed to find a majority owner for a special-purpose company that will be formed to develop, finance, build, operate and maintain the plant.
Expressions of interest came from companies and consortia based in China, Italy, Belgium, Estonia, Turkey and Greece, PPCR said.
Announcement of the companies that have qualified for the request-for-proposal stage will follow.
The plant is planned for installation on a 58,000 square metre site near a thermal power plant operated by PPCR. Once completed, it will be connected to an existing district heating network.
