Polissia TPP has a capacity of 5.9 MW, the final cost of the facility amounted to more than 10 million euros. The plant is climate-neutral and runs on biomass – wood residues from the woodworking industry, forest sanitation, and energy willow, which is grown near TPP.
Polissia TPP together with energy willow plantations forms a green energy cluster – a full cycle from fuel growing to electricity production.
The newly built station is able to provide uninterrupted power supply during peak loads and will be able to supply more than 40 million kWh of electricity annually, which will significantly improve the energy balance of the region and district.
At Polissia TPP, 50 jobs were created and another 200-300 jobs were created in the field of wood chips harvesting and supply. The TPP will also pay millions of hryvnias in taxes and fees. This will be an additional incentive for the construction of new enterprises in the region.
Such objects become drivers of community development.
The Ukrteplo group of companies plans to expand the area of energy willow near the thermal power plant (currently there are 12 hectares) in order to increase the volume of its own raw materials.
