The Kiels Heat and Power Plant wants to abandon the use of coal, which pollutes the air, and intends to replace it with natural gas. On Tuesday, August 24, a contract was signed for the construction of new boilers running on such fuel.
On Monday, Polska Grupa Energetyczna Energia Cieplna, to which Elektrociepłownia Kielce belongs, signed a contract with SBB Energy to build a gas boiler house. During the press conference, Przemysław Kołodziejak, Chairman of Board of Directors PGE Energia Ciepła announced that this is very good news for the residents of Kielce. The contract is of great importance to the company and the residents. He added that thanks to this investment, the air quality will improve and the energy security of the population will increase – there will be no heat shortage for anyone.
9 companies participated in the investment tender, SBB Energy made the cheapest offer and the contract was concluded with them. – We are pleased that this company won the tender because it is a company with Polish capital. Our group supports economic nationalism. The boilers will be supplied by Sefaco from Świętokrzyskie county.
This is another step in the transition to using a less environmentally harmful energy source than coal, added Zbigniew Duda, director of the Kelsey Heat and Power Plant. – It’s a very important day, we have signed an agreement that will change the Kielce power supply system to thermal power. It will be produced on the basis of natural gas. We will slowly move away from coal-generated energy, he added. – As part of the investment, 5 boilers with a total capacity of 160 MW will be built. They will form the core of the combined heat and power plant in the winter, and in the summer, production will depend on energy generated from biomass. We have used biomass for a long time to produce heat and electricity. We try to take care of the air quality and therefore the health of the people of Kielce.
