In a joint project, ENGIE Deutschland and the Gera energy supply have switched the district heating supply for Gera to smaller and decentralized generation units based on CHP modules
The electrical energy generated at the Lusan and Tinz sites is fed into the medium-voltage grid and all thermal energy into the EGG district heating grid. For this purpose, the EGG has also refurbished the district heating system, as well as the connection to the natural gas and medium-voltage grid. The power plants are operated by ENGIE Deutschland and supply nearly 19,000 households in Gera with electricity and heat.
After an in-depth examination of various restructuring alternatives, the appropriate areas in the Lusan and Tinz areas were prepared for construction. After the planning, including tender and approval procedures, the construction of the two power plants began simultaneously. Within a few months, civil engineering and civil engineering were completed in early 2018.
The heart of the project, i.e. the installation of the technical systems, was carried out in several stages. The official inspections took place after completion of the plant assembly and technical building equipment. All tests necessary for the safe and intended operation of the system were checked, documented and approved by experts in the final inspection.
Since the end of 2018, the two power plants have been in operation.
