Official website of the City of Kruševac said the local authority signed a cooperation memorandum concerning a future cogeneration plant with Building Energy 1, subsidiary of Building Energy from Milan, Italy, and local company Sinergy Invest.
The construction and installation project is worth EUR 25 million, and the plan is to initially employ 30 to 50 people, the press release said. The city’s officials said it is possible to establish special cooperation with the Italian company also in the field of solar energy, including a study and a plan to install a photovoltaic facility.
The planned combined heat and power plant, fuelled by biomass, will be located next to the district heating facility, in order to enable them to connect, and the project’s start is planned for October 14. The project is supposed to be complete in two years, the press release said. Paolo Rossi, Building Energy’s head manager for Eastern Europe, visited Kruševac in April.
