Company Energijainvest started the construction of its biomass-fuelled combined heat and power (CHP) plant in the town of Grubišno Polje in Croatia’s northeast. The planned capacity is 3.8 MW, electricity will be supplied to the public grid, while heating will be used by the company.

As one of its founders Stjepan Rajnović said, the investment is worth HRK 12 million (EUR 1.58 million) and he started doing paperwork a year ago with Milan Gomerčić, another co-founder, using funds from a loan. „We wish to end construction works by the end of October, after which comes the mounting of equipment for about a month, then it’s 15 days of test operation, so we aim to make the facility work around mid-December,“ he said and Radio Grubišino Polje reported on the town’s website.

The plant will use wood chips as fuel and four people should be employed, but several times more workers will be hired through co-op deals, the article said. The return on investments is expected within six years. Mayor Zlatko Mađeruh said this energy facility project was the last of three in the town to start developing, but the first to launch construction works, as the investors were more diligent on applying for permits and took care of the financing.
