Kladno Heating plant, Czech Republic
Teplárna Kladno s.r.o. is one of a major producers of thermal and electrical energy. It is heat and electricity supplier for Kladno households and industry companies. It plays also an important role for stability of the Czech grid system thanks to providing a grid support services and as a back-up power source for Prague´s Metropolitan Area in the case of total black-out.
Kladno heating plant operates 5 production units (blocks B4, B5, B6, B7 and B8). Four of them are used for prompt heat and electricity production. The primary fuel is coal which can be co-burned with biomass. Modern technology and its operation ensure the maximum reduction of emissions released into the air.
In addition, company operates grid and technology for energy, heat and gas distribution in the industrial area of former Poldi United Steelworks. Company supplies Kladno households and public and private utilities throughout central heating system operate by TEPO – company 100% owned by local municipality. Kladno heating plant is the primary source of heat for City of Kladno.
In the period between 2010 and 2013, a new power unit was constructed to replace the obsolete Unit 3 built in 1976. The new power unit has capacity of 135 megawatts and represents a state-of-the-art fluidized-bed combustion technology. The boiler is equipped so as to comply with the new emission limits under the EU LCP Directive from its commissioning date. The new power unit is situated on the same place as earlier demolished original Boilers 1 and 2. The whole plant is also in compliance with new EU emission limits valid from August 2021.
Total annual production of the Electricity is approximately 2 – 2,2 TWh, heat delivery to the central heating system is 0,8 – 1 PJ.

“We strive to limit the environmental impact of our business. More than two thirds of the area affected by our mining activities have been eclaimed or are undergoing reclamation (e.g. forestry, agriculture, hydro or parkland).”
We believe the renewal and creation of land resources in the area affected by industrial activity is a natural part of our work. It is a designed activity, and the individual parts (fields, forests, meadows, water surfaces) must functionally fit together. This creates an environmentally balanced landscape with a stable ecosystem that is economically efficient, healthy, hygienic and socially acceptable. Over the past 60 years, more than 7,000 hectares have been restored and returned to use in one of our localities – the Most region.
Here, along with mining, a reclamation process is under way to create a new multifunctional landscape that includes agricultural and forest land, smaller and larger water surfaces and land left for natural regeneration in appropriate habitats. In places where coal was recently mined, grapes are now harvested, mouflons and foxes roam the reclaimed landscape and we can catch a glimpse of sand martins that nest there every year
