Furthermore, ITA participates in THERMI SERRES S.A., the project company now implementing a CHP and District Heating plant in Serres, Greece.
The THERMIE SERRES plant operates as an independent combined heat and power station of total electrical power of 16,5 MWe and 91,5 MWth thermal power. The main fuel is natural gas. Hot water from the CHP station provides the city of Serres with heat and hot tap water through the district-heating network.
