Macedonia commissioned its first gas-cogeneration power plant

The Skopje gas-cogeneration power plant was commissioned. The plant is Macedonia’s first commercial natural gas-fueled CHP project completed within the international “Clean Development Mechanism” (CDM). The Skopje plant has a capacity of 30.4 MWe and 13.6 MWth. Thanks to the combined production of power and heat, the plant’s overall efficiency is 80.5%.

The opening of the power plant is part of the Balkan nation’s initiative to install more efficient industrial and district heating facilities that will help improve regional energy reliability and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The plant’s power will support the operation of local steel factories in the Zelezara Skopje industrial park.

The Skopje project was developed by Camco International, a UK-based international carbon credit financial services company. Austrian Trade at the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, Austria’s official foreign trade promotion organization, also provided financial support. The Skopje’s new CHP plant is expected to earn about 185,000 Certified Emission Reduction (CER) credits a year.
