Companies Srbijasume and Building Energy Krusevac (a subsidiary of the namesake Italian company) have signed an agreement on long-term cooperation stipulating exploitation of timber over the period of ten years. The agreement is an important step towards the construction of a biomass power plant in Krusevac.
The construction is supposed to start in spring 2017 and the plant is supposed to become operational during the 2018/2019 heating season. The entire project is worth over 20 million EUR.
Director of Building Energy for Southeast Europe Paolo Rossi said that the agreement with Srbijasume was the key moment that was long time in making, adding that now all obstacles to implementation of the biomass plant project had been removed.
Acting Director General of Srbijasume Predrag Aleksic said that he hoped that the project would prompt other towns in Serbia to do the same.
“By using wood, which is a renewable energy-generating product, we are going to reduce pollution and save a lot of money”, Aleksic added.
Director of Building Energy said that over 60,000 cubic metres of wood would be used towards this purpose.
According to Director of Gradska Toplana (Krusevac’s state-run heating company), Dragan Azdejkovic Building Energy would also finance construction of a heating pipeline that would stretch between the biomass power plant and Toplana and would be worth around 800,000 EUR.
