Sisak power plant's new block on trial run

A new 240-million-euro gas-powered cogeneration Block C within the thermal power plant in Sisak was put on a trial run at a ceremony held in that city 50 kilometres south-east of Zagreb on Wednesday.

 A part of the funds, that is 88 million euros, were provided through a clearance debt which the Russian Federation had towards Croatia before 1990, while the state-run Croatian power provider HEP invested EUR 152 million in the new 230-megawatt bloc that will replace the old Block A.

Attending the ceremony, Economy Minister Ivan Vrdoljak said that this event showed that it was possible to build and set up new plants and develop industry in Sisak.

HEP Management board chair Perica Jukic said that during the trial-run period possible deficiencies within the block would be removed in cooperation with the Russian partners and that the operational licence for the new segment of the plant would be issued in 2016.

The work on the block was performed by the Russian Technopromexport and a Croatian consortium of Monting & Ing-Grad and Koncar KET.
