Serbia to build biomass district heating plant

A new biomass heating plant worth four million euros will be built in Serbia, following a contract signing for the plant’s construction in the eastern town of Majdanpek on Tuesday (30 May).

“Majdanpek is another local self-government that will completely switch to the use of biomass in the district heating system. With this investment, fuel oil is a thing of the past, so sulfur dioxide emissions from the heating plant will be completely eliminated, while carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by 93 per cent, from 3,757 to 263 tons of CO2 per year,” said Serbia’s Energy and Mining Minister, Dubravka Đedović, who attended the signing ceremony.

“On the other hand, it is estimated that the operating costs of the heating plant will be lower by 15 per cent, which will have an additional positive effect on its business. This should be an example for other cities and municipalities, to improve their district heating systems so that they are at the same time highly efficient and that the impact on the environment is reduced to the smallest possible extent,” she added.

Together with the reconstruction of parts of the hot water network and substations, for which the contract was signed earlier in April, 5.5 million euros in total will be invested in the Majdanpek project. It is expected that the works on the heat pipe and substations will be completed by the beginning of the heating season, while the work on the construction of the new heating plant is set to begin in July and be completed by February 2024.

After Mali Zvornik, Priboj and Novi Pazar, Majdanpek is the fourth local self-government that will receive a new biomass heating plant from the government’s support programme, aimed at developing the country’s biomass sector. The programme, worth around 26.75 million euros, is being implemented with the support of the German Development Bank and a donation from the Swiss Confederation, Serbia’s Energy and Ministry said.
