Installation of new gas motor in the Heating Plant Polaj

Installation of a new gas motor in the Heating Plant Polaj is the most important project of the company Komunala Trbovlje in the year 2014. The Heating Plant Polaj is equipped with two Combined Heat and Power Plants, each generating 3 MW of power and 3 MW of heat; both CHPPs were implemented by RUDIS. The first of gas Co-generation Units has been in operation since 2005, and the second since 2009. In the year 2008 RUDIS erected also the heat storage reservoirs with the purpose of Heating Plant optimization.

With the new Co-generation Unit of 1 MW power and 1 MW heat the Heating Plant Polaj will satisfy lower needs for heat in the summer time and thus decrease operating losses. Compared to separate power generating the simultaneous recovery of natural gas for heat and power generating is extremely efficient from the energy point of view, as it enables considerable energy savings and decrease in energy supply costs. Thus also carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into atmosphere are reduced.
