DB Energy has signed an agreement for the implementation of a comprehensive energy efficiency project for Słodownia Soufflet Polska sp. z o.o., an agri-food company. The investment worth EUR 6,3 million includes the development and installation of a cogeneration system, cooperating with process heat recovery for the needs of the Poznań plant. The agreement will be executed in the ESCO model financed from the first utilisation of the EUR 20 million ESCO facility agreed between DB Energy and SUSI Partners AG. The remuneration due to DB Energy for the settlement of the project - payable over 10 years - will be generated from the cost savings generated for the customer. The project will reduce CO₂ emissions by 9.5 thousand tonnes per annum, which corresponds to the annual average emission of over 1.5 thousand residential homes in Poland.
