Idex Baltic operates in Lithuania and is the largest independent heat producer in the country. Idex chose to supplement two of their heating plants in Vilnius with ORC, one of these is the Paneriškių heating plant. The heating plant is powered by biofuel boilers using materials such as wood chips and forest residues as fuel. To be able to produce its own electricity and at the same time work towards a more climate-smart society, Idex chose to supplement the heating plant with ORC systems.
For the Paneriškių heating plant, Againity supplied two automated ORC systems with a total maximum capacity of 800 kW electricity production. The ORC systems enable electricity production from the hot water of the bioboilers. The Paneriškių heating plant is expected to produce a total of 3885 MWh annually, corresponding to 3497 tonnes of CO2 equivalents when substituting coal-based electricity.
