Bulgarian Thermal Power Plant Burgas Advances Towards Sustainable Energy Transition

Thermal Power Plant Burgas (TPP Burgas) is making noteworthy strides in its transition towards sustainable energy, as reported by engineer Hristin Iliev, the executive director of the power plant. TPP Burgas is actively investing in the adoption of more eco-friendly energy sources while reducing coal consumption.

To achieve this goal, TPP Burgas is diversifying its energy mix by incorporating natural gas, biomass, photovoltaics, and wind turbines as suitable alternatives to coal. These measures are expected to gradually decrease the reliance on coal and improve the overall carbon footprint in Bulgaria.

An ongoing project at TPP Burgas involves the installation of a new cogenerator powered by natural gas, specifically designed to produce thermal energy. With a capacity of 9 megawatts, the cogenerator is set to enhance the power plant’s energy production capabilities.

Engineer Hristin Iliev mentioned that the operational timeline for the cogenerator’s commissioning is dependent on various factors, including collaborations with other companies. However, he expressed optimism that the facility will be operational by the beginning of the upcoming heating season.

TPP Burgas remains committed to maintaining the use of biomass as a reliable and environmentally friendly energy source. Biomass has been integrated into their energy mix for several years, offering an efficient and cost-effective means of producing cleaner energy for the residents of Burgas. Notably, biomass is classified as a renewable energy source, ensuring minimal harm to the environment during its production and utilization.

Furthermore, TPP Burgas aims to minimize the impact on consumer expenses. In the previous regulatory period, while other providers increased heat energy prices by a considerable margin, TPP Burgas raised prices by a mere BGN 0.34. This approach shields customers from significant price shocks, and the power plant intends to continue this trend to keep heating costs in Burgas stable.

TPP Burgas also emphasizes the importance of maintaining and enhancing their production facilities, heat transmission network, and subscriber stations. These efforts are crucial to ensuring a reliable supply of green energy to customers throughout the region.

TPP Burgas, under engineer Hristin Iliev’s leadership, is actively progressing towards a more sustainable energy landscape. By implementing diverse energy sources, such as natural gas and biomass, and focusing on infrastructure maintenance, the power plant aims to pave the way for a greener future in the region.
