The Żychlin Combined Heat and Power (CHP) facility supplies most of the town’s heating at an installed capacity of 27.1 MW, with five heating networks distributing the heat generated. The investor, Energa Kogeneracja, selected a consortium of Energoprojekt-Warszawa SA and CDM Smith to draft a design for two gas motors with a total power of 4 MWe/3.75 MWt and a biomass boiler with an extraction-condensing turbine at 2.7 MWe/5.2 MWt in Żychlin together with the necessary infrastructure.
The scope of works included preparing the basic engineering and design as well as obtaining all the required assessments, agreements and decisions, including a final construction permit on behalf of the investor.
Implementing the designed system will ensure reduction of harmful substances emitted to the environment.
This investment is a part of research task to develop integrated technologies to produce fuels and energy from biomass, agricultural waste and other materials – in the National Research and Development Centre strategic programme for advanced energy manufacturing technologies coordinated by the Polish Academy of Science Institute of fluid-flow machinery. Its purpose is to cooperate with industry using modern co-generation technologies.
