Liepaja plants

Latvenergo AS holds a 51% share in Liepājas enerģija SIA. Liepājas enerģija SIA ensures generation, transmission, distribution and supply of thermal energy in the city of Liepaja as well as generation of electricity in cogeneration mode.

The total installed thermal energy capacity of the Liepaja plants is 221 MW, including 40 MW from a renewable source: woodchips. Installed electrical capacity totals 6 MW. In 2017, the Liepaja plants generated 258 GWh of thermal energy and 48 GWh of electricity.

New generation capacities have been built at Liepaja plants with co-financing from the EU Cohesion Fund, increasing the share of biomass consumption in the fuel balance at the Liepaja plants from 0% before 2010 to 62% in 2017. Due to the reconstruction of thermal energy transmission and distribution networks in Liepaja, thermal energy losses have also been reduced considerably over the past few years. The loss ratio decreased from 15.4% in 2013 to 12.7% in 2017.
