First cogeneration plant outside Croatia for KONČAR – Engineering

27/10/2023

After the realization of a series of projects for one of the largest European manufacturers of boiler plants Andritz TEP, Slavonski Brod (former Đuro Đaković TEP) in the area of distributed generation, i.e. electric control of wood biomass cogeneration plants in Croatia (in Slavonski Brod, Sisak, Osijek, Glina, Đakovo, Slatina, Županja, Virovitica and Gospić), KONČAR – Engineering contracted the first job in the subject area, for the same customer, but this time for a project outside Croatia.

Hungary’s leading sugar manufacturer, Hungrana, decided to expand its existing capacity for steam production from renewable sources and invested in the construction of a biomass boiler. The new woodchip boiler will further increase Hungrana’s capacity for steam production from renewable sources. It will operate at 12 bar (g) and 220 °C, and will supply an additional 32 tons of steam per hour to the Hungrana system. This investment is part of Hungrana’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and reducing its environmental impact while simultaneously increasing production capacity, given that Hungrana already operates several boilers using different biomass fuels.
They entrusted the manufacture and commissioning of the new biomass boiler to Andritz TEP, and KONČAR – Engineering contracted their scope of works according to the “turnkey” system – preparation of the detailed design, equipment supply, assembly and commissioning for the complete system of boiler electric control, instrumentation, metering, power connection of the boiler to the existing LV distribution of the Hungrana plant, distribution of the boiler’s general and own consumption and diesel generation unit.
