In October 2021, the Polish municipality-owned energy company OPEC Grudziądz Sp. z o.o. announced that its “Development of high-efficiency cogeneration through the construction of a biomass boiler unit at EC Łąkowa in Grudziądz” project had received a positive assessment and was awarded a grant and a loan from the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management the “District Heating Industry” program.
The same project has also received funding from the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area 2014-2021, aka Norwegian Funds.
First-of-its-kind in Poland
On November 4, 2022, OPEC Grudziądz signed a contract with a consortium consisting of compatriot energy engineering and construction services provider SBB ENERGY SA (Leader) and DP CleanTech Poland SA for a first-of-its-kind in straw-fired steam boiler plant.
To be built adjacent to the existing coal-fired EC Łąkowa combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Grudziądz, the 12.5 MWth steam boiler unit will use locally sourced straw as fuel supplying steam into the turbine island of the Łąkowa CHP plant.
DP CleanTech will supply the “fuel to stack” – including a new fuel yard for handling straw, grate steam boiler and boiler auxiliaries, and flue gas treatment.
The deadline for the implementation of the project, the value of which has not been disclosed, is October 3, 2024.
We are very happy to announce that we have won the contract for a biomass power plant that is the “first” of its type in Poland that uses loose straw as fuel. This is a fantastic project win for DP and will help to provide energy security to the local community, as well as significantly reduce coal consumption in the area, said DP CleanTech in a statement.
