Luxembourg-based investment fund PEARL Infrastructure Capital is the new owner of a 5 MWe biomass cogeneration plant in Croatia.

Energy service company Resalta has sold its biomass cogeneration plant in the Croatian municipality of Slatina. According to the company, the transaction is one of the largest foreign investments in the biomass renewables sector in Croatia.

The Slatina biomass plant was sold through Energy 9, the Resalta subsidiary that owned the powerplant in partnership with Iskraemeco, Resalta said on its website.

Resalta has designed and constructed the plant, which was officially put into operation in June 2019. The electric capacity of the plant is 5 MW, while the heat capacity reaches 12 MW.

The plant has a long-term electricity offtake contract signed with the Croatian Energy Market Operator (HROTE). It generates 40 GWh of electricity each year.
