A competitive edge in district heating

The challenge

Recognizing the need to strengthen its position as the largest private operator of district heating networks—and third-largest cogeneration plant in Poland—Veolia turned to GE to improve the output and flexibility of their operations.

GE’s technologies are anticipated to boost the plant’s turbine efficiency by up to 6% and to increase its output by up to 6 MW, with the extra power being delivered to the local grid. Additionally, to improve operational flexibility during periods when there is no demand for electricity, Veolia will be able to divert the power for district heating water only.
