Vilnius Combined Heat and Power Plant (Vilnius CHP) is one of the most technologically advanced plants in Europe, which produces both power and heat. The plant can cover around 40% of the capital’s district heating demand. The remaining heat demand is covered by other independent heat producers and heat suppliers.
The plant is using two types of fuel, non-hazardous non-recyclable municipal waste left after sorting and biofuel. The waste-to-energy (WtE) unit has one boiler, and the biomass unit has two.
Vilnius CHP can generate enough electricity per year to power around 320 thousand households.
We take the environmental impact of the plant very seriously. That’s why it has state-of-the-art pollutant treatment systems that synergise well with the best available production methods, and we are continuously monitoring emissions.
We are utilising the following technologies to ensure the highest environmental standards:
The project is funded by the European Union, the European Investment Bank and Ignitis Group.
Address: Jočionių g. 13, Vilnius.
When deciding on the location of Vilnius CHP, technical and legal parameters of the site, economic and environmental aspects, and distance to residents, customers and fuel sources were taken into account.
