Promoteur – Intermédiaire FinancierSOFIA MUNICIPALITY
A major project allocation under the Bulgaria EU funds co-financing 2014-2020 loan consisting of the construction and commissioning of a new combined heat and power (CHP) plant for Sofia's district heating network operated by Toplofikacia utilising refuse-derived fuel (RDF). This would be the final phase of the integrated Sofia Municipal Waste project.
The plant will combust refuse-derived fuel (RDF), feed its electricity into the public grid, and provide heat to the district heating system of Sofia. It will partly replace heat generation in existing natural gas fired installations.
The same underlying project has already been supported by the Bank with Sofia Municipality as borrower under the operation TOPLOFIKACIA CHP PROJECT (2009-0545). Project investment costs have been allocated between the two operations in proportion to the proposed EIB financing.
