The winner was selected by a large jury composed of the professional public and partners of the Grant – e.g. the Union of Industry and Transport of the Czech Republic, the Czech Export Bank, Ernst&Young, EGAP, White&Case and, of course, the organizer of the whole competition – the HSBC bank. More about the competition on www.podporaexportu.cz.The subject of the winning project is the delivery of CHP units to the large logistics centre in Sofin, south of Moscow.
The CHP units will be used here to supply the electricity to the logistics centre and to heat the storage areas. In the first phase, the electricity from the CHP units will be used for the objects of centre and surrounding entities own consumption.Therefore, units will be adapted for island mode operation. In the next phase, the units will also supply electricity to the grid but at the same time serve as an emergency source of electricity in the event of a power outage. In the third phase, there is also considered the possible use of trigeneration, that is to say, the joint production of electricity, heat and cold. In this case, the CHP units would be supplemented with absorption units for the cold production.The entire project is divided into 3 phases, the first of which will be implemented in 2013. The next stages will follow between 2014 and 2015. The total installed capacity of CHP units at the end of the third stage should be 10.4 MW.
