Fortum to inaugurate CHP plant in Latvia

Latvia's largest combined heat and power (CHP) biomass plant is due to come online later this month.

Energy company Fortum developed the Jelgava-based plant, which will consume woodchips to generate 45MW of power and 23MW of electricity – enough to benefit 85% of the city's heating capacity.

The inauguration ceremony on 11 September will be attended by Latvia's president Andris Bērziņš and Fortum CFO Markus Rauramo.
