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. 

Our activities

Our fundamental goal is to meet the heat and electricity demand on the basis of technical modernization, quality, reliability and sustainability.

Having stopped coal firing, our company has strengthened its business position and has become a determining factor in Hungarian energy production. It has gained a prominent role in the fields of provision of energy and expert services as well as in the environmental industry even outside the borders of Hungary.
Thanks to our innovative strategy we have become a cutting edge company in the biomass energy production of the twenty-first century. We are currently working hard to build up production and service provision procedures meeting the demands of the future to be able to provide more value, more modern services to our partners under the changing market and regulatory conditions, facing environmental challenges.
It marked a new era for our direct surroundings as well when in the summer of 2004 the largest biomass-fuelled energy producing unit of Central Europe started its operation in our power plant. By commissioning a new 35MW straw-fuelled unit we hope to strengthen biomass firing in Pécs on order to supply the city with 100% green district heat.
Pannonpower is contemplating other alternatives to extend its fuel portfolio. Significant research activity is conducted with regard to the utilization of energy grass for energy production.
