OHLA is participating in one of the largest renewable energy projects announced this year in the Czech Republic. The scope of the contract, awarded by the state-owned company Teplárny Brno for about EUR 100 million, consists of the modernization of a part of the Brno-North thermal power plant for combined heat and power production from renewable energy sources.

Specifically, the company will be responsible for the design and reconstruction work on the facility, which will operate with a new wood chip-fired steam boiler. This new heat source, with a maximum fuel input of 50 MW, will ensure the constant production of reliable and environmentally friendly heat for Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic, and increase energy production, decreasing its dependence on natural gas.
