Romita Green Energy is to build what is set to be one of the largest CHP plants based on biomass both in Romania and south-eastern Europe.
Located in Rascruci, Cluj county, the new plant will see a total investment of $42.5m and have an input of 40 MW.
The plant will annually use 120,000 tonnes of wood biomass and derivatives (scrap wood for heating, sawdust, tree branches, shrubs and straws).
The new plant joins an already operational cogeneration plant in Radauti, Suceava County.
In addition another project in the making is a EUR100m investment by Valcea County Council in two high-efficiency cogeneration plants.
