Lithuanian Energy AB (LE), through its implementing agency UAB Vilniaus Kogeneracine Jegaine, is undertaking the construction of a combined heat and power plant in Lithuania.
The project involves the construction of a combined heat and power complex and is planned to be implemented in two units.
The project features an incineration unit to produce 18MW electrical capacity and 53MW thermal and a biomass unit to produce 70MW electrical capacity and 174MW thermal.
It includes the construction of a powerhouse, a substation, access roads, and the installation of generator, transformers and turbines, and the laying of transmission line.
On January 23, 2014, the Lithuanian Health Ministry rejected an environmental impact assessment for the project.
In the second quarter of 2015, a draft of preliminary technical specifications was invited from the interested companies to compete for the project with April 21, 2015 as the submission deadline. In August 2015, nine firms expressed their interest in the project.
On July 12, 2016, a consortium consisting Steinmuller Babcock Environment GmbH, Budimex S.A. and Kauno Dujotiekio Statyba UAB was selected as the most preferred bidder with the bid value of US$197 million for waste-fired boiler; whereas RAFAKO SA was selected as the preferred bidder with the bid valued at US$166 million for biofuel facilities.
On September 19, 2016, The European Commission approved support for the plant. The project will be financed by the European Investment Bank through the European Fund for Strategic Investments, EFSI, along with state aid granted by Lithuania.
On September 29, 2016, a consortium consisting Steinmuller Babcock Environment GmbH with its partners Budimex S.A. and Kauno dujotiekio statyba (KDS) were awarded US$201 million construction contract for the project. Rafako SA will supply biofuel burning equipment.
Budimex will undertake the construction part as well as the water-steam cycle and the high-voltage connection. KDS will be responsible for the local planning, the district heating pipelines and the connection to the external infrastructure.
In December 2016, project secured US$204 loan million funding from The European Investment Bank (EIB).
Construction works commenced in September 2016. Construction works are expected to complete in 2018.
The project involves the construction of two combined heat and power (CHP) plants with a total capacity of 315MW in Vilnius, Lithuania.
The US$370 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of an incineration unit to produce 18MW electrical capacity and 53MW thermal
2. Construction of a biomass unit to produce 70MW electrical capacity and 174MW thermal
