In this case, the total value of grant amounted to 15% of the plant investment value, i.e. 275.000 USD. The plant has 0.6 MW of installed electric and 0.6 MW of installed thermal power. Technology of Dutch company Host was implemented for production of biogas. The expected annual production of power amounts to 5,000 MWh. Construction of two further stages of power plant, when two more CHP units of the same capacity will be added, is envisaged. Upon completion of the third stage, the power plant will have the total installed capacity of 1.8 MWe. The total value of investment into this plant amounts to 2.37 million USD.
