Opcon wins another bioenergy repeat order in the Czech Republic
Opcon, the energy and environmental technology Group, has received yet another order for equipment that recycles waste heat, this time within the bioenergy sector in the Czech Republic. The order concerns the delivery of the SRE Renergi flue gas condenser including treatment for another district heating plant operated by TTS in the town of Trebic, Czech Republic. This is the third order for district heating plants in Trebic, which as 45,000 inhabitants. The first was delivered in the autumn, 2010.
The district heating plant in Trebic has a 7.9 MW biomass boiler. When the SRE condenser is installed, energy efficiency will be increased by 25-30%. Meanwhile, emissions of dust particles will be reduced considerably, to below 20 mg/nm3.
The customer is Intech Slovakia s.r.o., a subsidiary of TTS eko s.r.o., which is a leading biomass company in both the Czech Republic and Slovakia, with a number of its own plants and extensive sales of technical equipment within the sector.
“We are very pleased that once again we have the opportunity to help to improve the efficiency of a TTS plant. This is especially important because of their position as a pioneer in the Czech market. There is great potential in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, with bioenergy still in the early phase of development. Up to now, fossil fuels and nuclear power have dominated the energy sector completely.” says Rolf Hasselström, President and CEO of Opcon AB.
