Some elements of the cranes lifting the straw bales onto the conveyor belt transporting them from the store into the power plant have a wingspan of 21 m, i.e. in a vertical position they would be the same height as floor 7 of a block of flats on a housing estate.
The readiness level of the remediation of the last remaining part at the 51 hectare area in Tüskésrét has just surpassed 70%. During the year since the beginning of the remediation more than 370 000 cubic meters of earth were laid down under 65 000 working hours to the former tailing area of the power plant. The project goes according to schedule and although the deadline is at the end of the year, the job will likely be done during the end of the summer.
The city of Pécs was awarded the special award entitled “100% renewable energy based district heating” at the fifth season of RES Champions League. The championship of renewable energy sources is a competition involving more than 10 000 local governments and regions of 12 European countries, where the cities compete with each other in the field of renewable energy utilization.
Engineering students from France visited the power plant of Pécs as a part of their professional training organized by the parent company of Pannonpower. During the field trip, which was one of the stations of their one-week stay in Hungary, they had a chance to explore the power plant producing energy from entirely renewable sources.
COGEN Europe, the European association for the promotion of cogeneration, elected Dalkia Energy Group’s straw fuelled power plant in Pécs, which was unveiled last year, best in the category of market development.
The agricultural by-product fuelled block of Pannonpower’s Pécs power plant, which was launched last year, received the commendation of the Hungarian Association for Innovation. After sweeping several grand prizes in the past, the completely renewable energy-based technology providing green district heating to the county seat of Baranya now has won the most prestigious award of the Association.
