The PGE Group Investment Committee published a positive recommendation for the construction project continuation of the New heat and power generating plant Czechnica. The construction of a modern production unit is a part of the PGE Group’s Heating Strategy which assumes energy security and air quality improvement in Polish cities. The published recommendation follows on the decision taken by the PGE Group in April 2018 to proceed with a feasibility study for two technical variants to replace the infrastructure of the current heat and power generating plant. The recommendation concerns the selection of one of them – it was decided that it will be a combined gas and steam unit with a reserve boiler house which will consist of 2 gas boilers and 2 mixed gas/oil boilers.
In January 2016, desulphurization and denitrogenation systems were launched at the Wrocław Combined Heat and Power Plant. The project has significantly improved air quality: sulphur oxide emissions have been reduced fivefold and nitrogen oxide emissions threefold.
