Amindeo Power Plant

 

Amindeo Power Station (Greek: ΑΗΣ Αμυνταίου) is a coal-fired power station located in Amindeo area in Western Macedonia, Greece. Build and commissioned in the mid 1980s, the power station is fuelled by lignite from the adjacent Amyntaio coal mine.

Today it is one of six power plants in an area called the Western Macedonia Lignite Center, which is located in the Ptolemaida Basin and constitutes the largest coalfield in Greece and the Balkans. Both the power plant and the adjacent mine are owned by the Public Power Corporation (PPC).

 

The Applied DH system

Amindeo Power Plant, owned by the Public Power Corporation (PPC), is equipped to make productive use of excess heat, supplying the area of Amindeo with co-generated district heat.

Connecting to the power stations steam pipelines, the Municipal District Heating Company of Amindeo operates an extensive network connecting 1250 public and residential buildings.

Originally constructed during 2000-2004, the district heating network is being expanded to cover a larger share of the wider area of Amindeo heating requirements.

The Amindeo district heating project is the third project of its kind in Greece following similar projects in Kozani and Ptolemaida.

The system has been installed in the wider region of Amindeo during 2000-2015, by municipal services, due to co-financing.

Municipal District Heating Company (DHCA) was established in 1997, according to the Municipal law (410/95), as a public body, owned 100% by the municipality of Amindeo, in order to administrate the DH system.

The Constitution of DHCA is under the County Decision 4779/29-05-1997 (ΦΕΚ 262Β/12-4-94), last modified by desicion No. 6607/2011 (ΦΕΚ 749Β/06-05-2011), after which DHCA constitutes a Public body, in the form of Municipal Company, intended to Administrate the District Heating System of Amindeo area, to construct all the necessary DH infrastructure, to Operate the DH system and to commission DH Heat to consumers.

According to SME definition DHCA is a Small size company.
