Romania: Work on the Titan cogeneration plant started

Supported byClarion Energy banner

Construction works at CET Titan, a fully automated plant that will be equipped with five engine-generator hydrogen-ready groups with an installed electrical power of up to 50 MWe and an installed thermal power of up to 40 MWt (34.4 g/h), started on Monday. The unit can use both methane gas and hydrogen mixtures, making it the most modern and flexible solution for an automated installation integrated into the heating and energy system in the east of the capital, according to the Romanian Ministry of Energy and SAPE (the Company for the Administration of Energy Participations).

Thus, through the project of a new high-efficiency combined heat and power plant, CET Titan Bucharest becomes the first project of this type in the last 15 years in the capital of Romania.

The Ministry of Energy, through the Modernization Fund, will be able to finance the project with 40 million euros of non-refundable funds out of the total expenses of 70 million euros.

“Our message is categorical and clear: the heating system in the capital has a future; it is the most efficient possible and the least polluting compared to all the other options we have at the moment. It is a project that has been on my and my team’s minds since the beginning of the mandate. CET Titan is also a chance for Bucharest residents to have access to hot water and heat in a more predictable way. It will serve 10,000 apartments with water and heat and more than 20,000 consumption points with electricity,” said Sebastian Burduja, Minister of Energy.

“I said that in the next four years we will reduce the bills of the citizens of Bucharest by half through these concrete solutions: the Elcen-Termoenergetica merger; modernization of the district heating network—590 million euros available through the Modernization Fund at the Ministry of Energy; modernization of CETs; connecting CETs directly to the Transgaz network—CET West is the first on the list, until the end of this year; and harnessing geothermal energy, for which we already have the feasibility study under way, supported by the US Department of Energy,” added Burduja.

The construction of the CET Titan is estimated to be completed at the end of 2026. At the same time, the plant will contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions.
