Investment in a biomass cogeneration plant will pay off in three years from energy savings only, making the company energy independent

Saucolemn SRL is a wood processing company covering forestry, transportation, primary processing, steaming, drying services and manufacturing of a wide range of products – from panels to windows and chairs.

The investment allows the company to produce enough heat for own wood drying process and stop purchasing the heat from the grid. Part of the generated electricity will be consumed for its own needs, while the rest (50MW) will be sold to the grid.

The investment will repay from energy savings in just 3 years. This project allows the company to significantly reduce its energy and operational costs, have a secure and efficient energy supply and, what is more important, become energy independent.
