Agriculture company ZIK Pelagonija JSC Bitola opened its biogas-fuelled power plant and cow dairy farm in the village of Novaci in Pelagonija region. It invested EUR 10.5 million in electricity generation of 3 MW and EUR 9.78 in the facility with 2,000 cows. ZIK Pelagonija said it is also investing in a farm in the village of Porodin with another power plant of 3 MW. There it will use heat from generators for two glass houses.

“I hope there will be similar investments in agriculture in the future with funds provided by the budget, i. e. direct investments projected at over EUR 100 million and the rural development program from which EUR 50 million are singled aside every year. The third financial source is the Ipard 2 program estimated at EUR 106 million,” said Mihail Cvetkov, minister of agriculture, forestry and water economy.

In May, subsidiary Pelagonija Enerdži DOOEL had its biogas-fuelled electric power plant registered in the national list of electricity-generating facilities that run on renewable sources. The generator has an installed capacity of 2 MW and it is the second of the type in Macedonia, as a thermal power plant on biogas operated by Elektro Šarri DOOEL was registered in February by the Energy Regulatory Commission.
