PGE Energia Ciepła will allocate approx. PLN 380 million for modernization in 2023

PGE Energia Ciepła – a subsidiary of Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE) – plans to allocate a total of approx. PLN 380 million for the modernization of production equipment and heating networks throughout 2023, PGE reported.

“The priority from the perspective of PGE Energia Ciepła’s operations is to ensure the security of heat supplies to our customers. Therefore, the infrastructure must be fully functional and ready in autumn, when the heating season begins, and spring and summer are the only times when the company can carry out comprehensive renovation and modernization works. In addition, we also carry out modernization activities on networks, which in turn will improve the efficiency of district heating systems. The upgrades will also bring environmental benefits. Thanks to the new heat pipelines, heat losses will be reduced, which will result in savings and a reduction in the amount of primary energy needed to be used in production,” said Maciej Jankiewicz, President of the Management Board of PGE Energia Ciepła, quoted in the release.

PGE Energia Ciepła CHP plants are located in 16 Polish cities, for which they produce heat and electricity in cogeneration. Currently, in all these locations, the heating infrastructure is being reviewed and all necessary repairs and modernizations are being carried out.

In Rzeszów, the gas-steam block is being repaired, in Toruń and Zielona Góra, gas turbines are inspected. The aircraft-type turbine in Toruń, one of the two in the 6-year-old combined heat and power plant, is undergoing a service inspection. The turbine in Zielona Góra was checked already at the turn of May and June and is ready for the heating season. In Lublin, the steam turbine is currently undergoing a major overhaul.

In July, the company delivered a modern, low-emission gas boiler house with a total capacity of approx. 40 MW, which completely replaced the coal-fired boilers of Elektrociepłownia Bydgoszcz I. Simultaneously with the ongoing investments, in order to maintain the reliability of heat supplies until the commissioning of new production units, the turbine set and steam boiler are being renovated in the second CHP plant in Bydgoszcz.
