A 49 MW wood-fired biomass district heating plant was officially commissioned in Banja Luka, thus replacing the old plant, which ran on fuel oil.

He said that the new plant’s operator Eko Toplane, will continue to work on the reconstruction of the city’s obsolete heating network, in which over 25 % of heat energy is lost in distribution.
