The new heating plant at the airport in Belgrade reduces the impact on the environment, News
A new energy plant for the production and distribution of heat and electricity has been put into operation at Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport, which will reduce its impact on the environment by using more efficient energy sources and switching from heavy fuels to natural gas, the airport announced today.
The new plant has 44 MW (megawatts) of total heat capacity and is equipped with the most modern, trigenerative system for the production and distribution of heat, cooling and electricity.
At the same time, the total heating capacity of the airport has been increased by 25 percent, thus meeting all heat needs of not only existing but also future consumers, in line with the planned development of the airport, while carbon footprint has been reduced by 25 percent.
It was pointed out that, with the envisaged solutions and the choice of equipment in the new heating plant, greater efficiency in the production and distribution of thermal energy was achieved.
This system, together with the smart building management system, provides more even energy consumption compared to the outside temperature.
It was emphasized that this is “another important step in the implementation of the environmental action plan of VINCI Airports in Belgrade, because the entire modernization project puts great focus on sustainable business with the ultimate goal of achieving zero levels of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.”
“The new power plant for the production and distribution of heat and electricity, in addition to reducing environmental impact, global warming and local air quality, also provides great savings, both for the airport and in the use of available natural resources,” said the CEO of Belgrade Airport, Francois Berisot.
According to him, extensive works on modernization and reconstruction of the airport envisage significant investments in environmentally sustainable business, in order to further reduce the impact on the environment in terms of emissions of harmful gases, water and waste.
It is recalled that in December 2020, Belgrade Airport joined the Accreditation Program for the Management of Carbon Dioxide Emissions at Airports (Airport Carbon Accreditation Program – ACA), and Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport received a Level 1 certificate.
This is, as stated, the first result in this area since the airport joined the network of VINCI Airports, which recognized the company’s efforts to reduce emissions.
This is just the beginning of the realization of projects related to sustainable business, and the construction of a 1 MW solar plant, two new solid waste processing plants and a wastewater treatment plant is in the final phase, the statement said, Danas reports.
