Did you know?
Approximately 160 tons of steel and reinforcing bars were used to build the foundation and supporting structures of the straw-fuelled boiler and about the same quantity was needed for the bale storage facility. This amount would be sufficient to build about 90 detached houses.
Conference on Energetics in Pécs
The three-day professional conference, which was organized by the Budapest University of Technology and Economics for the 12th time and was held in Pécs for the first time, placed the emphasis on sustainable energy production.
The Veolia-supported international conference was attended by experts in energetics who are working on the minimization of the environmental impacts of power plant-based power generation. In addition to researchers from the neighbouring countries, Swedish, Canadaian, Swiss, Russian, and French experts participated as well in the event and exchanged views and experiences in sustainable and environmentally friendly energy production.
During the first day of the conference the organizers stated why they chose a different location for their annual meeting this year: Pannonpower’s biomass-based power generation model in Pécs sets an excellent example to not only Hungary, but to the whole continent in providing power to similar sized cities. The power plant of Pécs was introduced to the professional audience by Péter Rudolf, deputy director of Pannon Hőerőmű Zrt. He detailed the technology of the woodchip and straw fuelled blocks respectively and shared the reasons and results of the plant developments of the last decade, while showcasing the district heating system of Pécs, which is based exclusively on renewable energy sources. After the presentation the attendants were invited to visit Pannonpower’s plant in Pécs, where they toured the Green Zone Visitor’s Centre as well.
