The Municipal Cogeneration Târgovişte Project has been one of the first projects initiated within the scope of the first framework agreement between the Netherlands and Romanian governments, intended to stimulate the development of a number of modern cogeneration projects as Commercial Joint Implementation projects.
Based on a proposal made by the Municipality and the municipally owned S.C. TERMICA S.A. (“TERMICA”), the experts of NUON, the Municipality and TERMICA have carried
out a study on the limitations of the present thermal energy production, transport and distribution systems and of the possibilities to improve them. The existing heat production facilities are rather old (25 – 30 years), which means not only a limited residual lifetime, but also a poor thermal efficiency. Besides, the existing heat production capacity is not sufficient for covering the heat demand during cold spells, leading in such periods to discomfort and unhappiness of the inhabitants.
The proposal is to install new cogeneration facilities with a total capacity of about 6.8 MWe and new heat only boilers with a capacity of 14.0 MWth, as well as to rehabilitate the existing heat transportation networks and an existing heat only boiler with a capacity of 58.2 MWth.
The project will solve the heat supply problems in the City of Târgovişte, will drastically improve the efficiency of electricity and heat production and will produce electricity and heat at lower cost and environmental friendlier than at present. The produced electricity will be partly consumed internally by the beneficiaries of the project and partly sold to a third party, whereas the produced heat will be delivered to the customers of S.C. TERMICA S.A.
