TEC Consulting team’s significant contribution to Lithuania’s energy future

May 19, 2023
On 20 April, employees from all over Lithuania, including members of the TEC Consulting team, gathered in the horse riding hall of the Duke Mykolas Oginskis Palace in Plungė. The day marked the solemn occasion – Lithuanian Energy Workers’ Day. During the celebration, the most meritorious employees in the field of energy were honoured.
5 members of the TEC team were awarded at the event organised by the Lithuanian Heat Suppliers Association:
  • Andrej Chodžin, Technical Director of TEC Consulting, was awarded a letter of appreciation from the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Lithuania;
  • Gintaras Verseckas, TEC Consulting’s adjusting engineer, received the Lithuanian Heat Energy Badge;
  • Letters of appreciation from the Council of the Lithuanian Association of Heat Suppliers were awarded to TEC Consulting Project Managers Edikas Barauskas and Edvinas Vaičekauskas, also to TEC Consulting Control Systems Engineer Irmantas Vaskelas.

The award-winning members of TEC Consulting are currently working on the renovation and retrofitting of the Vilnius CHP plant, an important project for Vilnius residents and visitors. This plant, together with the existing waste incinerator, should provide one fifth of the heat demand of Vilnius during the coldest periods and about 40 percent of the total heat demand of the capital during the year. It will be one of the most modern cogeneration plants of its kind in Europe.

A major milestone in the project has recently been officially launched – hot testing of the plant has started. The equipment is now being fine-tuned and preparations are underway for heat and power generation. The hot tests include all possible operating modes and testing of critical systems to make sure everything is working perfectly. Performance indicators are also monitored and recorded. The planned start of operation of the biofuel plant is the 2023-2024 heating season. This is a big step in reducing the share of fossil fuels in Vilnius and we are happy to be part of this positive change!

It is clear that energy workers play a vital role in improving the country’s economy and our quality of life, and the innovations we create every day are paving the way for a brighter and more sustainable energy future.
