Slovakia has this week launched two new gas fired combined heat and power plants in Bratislava and Sturovo.
Bratislava WEST has an installed electric capacity of 8.6 MW and heat capacity of 9.4 MWt. The annual gas consumption is estimated at 18.7 million cubic metres.
“The new modern technology can produce heat and electricity in a significantly more effective way, which might have a positive impact on the price of heat for the inhabitants,” said Anton Bielik, the director general of the investing company.
The produced heat will be distributed through central heating system in the city districts of Karlova Ves and Dubravka. Electricity will be streamed into the distribution network.
Last year 70 different cogeneration plants were registered all over Slovakia.
