Budapesti Erőmű Zrt.

 

The company has been supplying energy for the capital for more than 100 years. The oldest power plant unit, the recently shut down Révész Street Heating Plant, was built in 1906. Újpest Power Plant started to operate in 1910 and Kelenföld Power Plant began its operation in 1914. All the power plants were coal fired for several decades, and this fuel was replaced by heavy oil in the 1960’s and by natural gas later.

In Budapest, the supply of district heating for industrial consumers started in 1953, while for residential consumers it started in 1958, from Kelenföld Power Plant. To satisfy the growing residential demand, new power plants were built in Angyalföld, Kispest and Kőbánya in the early 1960’s (of these, only the modernised Kispest Power Plant is still in operation). Its basic objective is to generate energy from a clean energy source, at the highest possible efficiency and with a minimum environmental impact, as well as steadily and reliably.

As a result of the continuous developments, both heat and electricity are generated at a favourable efficiency and at a decreasing cost level. Due to the benefits of cogeneration, mainly the lower and lower fuel consumption, the environmental impact keeps on decreasing. At present, the emitted pollutants are five times less than before the 15-year modernisation programme.

With its environmentally friendly and efficient production, Budapesti Erőmű Zrt proves that a power plant and the residents can live in each other’s direct environment by keeping the other’s interests in mind and working for the future generations. The company strives to pursue its energy generation activities by keeping the principles of the Best Available Technology in mind:

  • for the operation of its equipment, it uses natural gas, which is the fossil fuel having the best properties;
  • within its energy generation activities, the company aims at maximising the share of the highest efficiency combined cycle cogeneration;
  • for its investments, the company takes long term development objectives into account in order to further increase its energy efficiency.

Budapesti Erőmű Zrt is the most significant energy generator in the capital. The company covers almost 60% of the district heating demand of the city, while its share in national electricity generation is more than 3%. As a result of the technological modernisation and the improved service quality, uninterrupted district heating at an increased comfort level is already ensured for almost half a million consumers living in 144 000 district heated homes. For strengthening Budapest’s district heating assets and for satisfying the future energy demands, the company cooperates with its strategic partners and with the local municipalities.

Some figures about Budapesti Erőmű (2013):

  • 274 employees
  • 396 MWe built-in electrical capacity
  • 1 174 MWth built-in thermal capacity
  • delivered electricity: 912 GWh
  • delivered heat: 6 380 TJ
  • fuel heat consumption: 11 488 TJ
  • electricity/heat transformation [σ]: 0.514
  • energy delivery efficiency: 84.1 %
  • primary energy saving indicator in national comparison: 30.23%
  • fuel quantity saved on universal (typically residential) natural gas consumption: 4.7%
  • non-emitted CO2 quantity compared to direct generation: 271 thousand tons

Since 2012, with their extremely wide capacity range and flexible control capabilities, the gas turbines of Budapesti Erőmű Zrt reliably participate in the secondary control of the national electricity system.

Budapest Power Plant (BERT) is the largest cogeneration power plant in Hungary, producing heat and electricity in the most environmentally friendly way.

Its combined cycle heat and power cogeneration plants are modern and environmentally friendly facilities. Their high efficiency equipment conform to the strict European standards, allowing considerable primary energy saving and greenhouse gas reduction.
