After two months of operation, a combined heat and power system of 8 MW and 4.6 MW, respectively, was opened in eastern Croatia, portal Vecernji.hr reported. The facility worth EUR 17 million was installed in Osijek by Slavonija DI d. o. o., flooring and veneer industry headquartered in Slavonski Brod. The plant has twenty employees and is partly utilized for the production of steam, the company’s chief Martina Ravlić Janković said. The power plant, which will use waste from production, is operated by subsidiary Slavonija OIE.

Agriculture minister Tihomir Jakovina, who laid the foundation stone two years before, said wood industry has had knowledge and adaptation skills even in the time of crisis, and that 90% of the knowledge in the development of the project was domestic.

The new CHP plant, after the implementation of a system of 3.3 MW of electricity and 6 MW of heat in the nearby village of Strizivojna, will bring savings and profit, and cover the whole production process, from logs to power, Ravlić Janković said. The company generates 90% of its earnings from export.
