“We completed another growth project of the MVV Energie CZ group, and we continue to boost the diversification of our products towards co-generation of electric energy. So, we fulfilled another target of our long-term strategy, following the last-year’s take-over of energy generation based on biomass, and increasing our portfolio by the sixteenth town,” commented on the project Ing. Václav Hrach, Ph.D., Chairman of the Board of Directors of MVV Energie CZ a.s.
The COGEN project means that our energy generation capacity has increased by 29 MW (13,5 MW for electricity, and 15,5 MW for heat). The project investment costs were CZK 350 mil. and involved 9 co-generation units in total, 7 storage tanks and 6 transformer stations in 5 towns in the Czech Republic.
The MVV Energie CZ group promises to continue in combined heat and power generation also in years to come. The next COGEN II project will commence in the City of Česká Lípa already in the autumn.
