The objective of the project activity is to upgrade the existing heat production plant CET Timisoara Sud with cogeneration capacity. The project improves the system efficiency and thereby reduces the environmental impact. CET Timisoara Sud is one of the main heat sources of Timisoara city in Romania. Prior to the project implementation, heat for the district heating network was produced in hot water boilers and in steam boilers but the facility was not equipped for cogeneration of heat and electricity. Through the project, CET Timisoara Sud is equipped with a backpressure steam turbine to process the steam produced in the steam boilers. The installed power is approximately 18 MW.

Before the implementation of the project, the electricity needed for heating plant operation and heat distribution in CET Timisoara Sud was delivered from the national power grid. The project enables electricity consumed internally in the heat production plant to be covered by the new efficient cogeneration capacities. The utilisation of the existing steam boilers in the most efficient way through the improved energy cycle will allow production of excess electricity at certain time periods. Reducing electricity imports and the export of excess electricity to the grid will limit the less efficient electricity production on the national power grid which has a significantly higher emission factor.

The proposed project will contribute to the sustainable development of the area and of the host country by increasing the supply of electricity produced efficiently through cogeneration.

The Ministry of Environment and Forests has confirmed this JI project under Track 1 procedure by the Order No. 297 dated March 21, 2008.
