Dalkia unit building HUF 24bn biomass block
The city of Pecs's (SW Hungary) district heating plant, owned by a unit of Dalkia, will put a HUF 24bn biomass-fueled block it is building into operation at the end of 2012, Pannonpower Holding told MTI on Wednesday.
The 35MW block will be the biggest straw-fuelled block in Hungary, burning 240,000 tons a year.
The power plant also has a 50MW wood-fueled block.
When the straw-fueled block is completed, the plant will power down its two gas-fueled blocks, using them only as a reserve source of heat.
