3) Activity:

Item Please fill in if applicable

General description:

Daugavgriva, a part of Riga town, is situated west of the river Daugava and close to the Gulf of Riga. The boiler house supplies inhabitants of Daugagriva region with heat but was earlier also energy centre for the Russian submarine base. The plant consists of four identical oil fired steam boilers DKVR-10/13 and two oil fired hot water boilers KGVM10. The annual heat production is about 80,000 MWh.

Type of project:a)

Conversion to renewable energy

Location (exact, e.g. city, region,

state):

Daugagrieva

Riga Region

LATVIA

Activity starting date:

2. June 1995 (Letter of Intent)

Expected activity ending date:

Loan expire date 31. March 2006

Stage of activity:b)

Complete

Lifetime of activity if different from ending date:c)

Expected technical lifetime is 15 years, which means that the plant is expected to be in operation till 2010.

Technical data:d)

One of the DKVR 10-13 boilers has been converted to biofuels, through the installation of a moving inclined grate in a separate pre-furnace. The project also comprises automatic fuel storage, flue-gas cleaning and a wood chipper. After conversion the output power of the boiler is estimated to 6 MW, with an estimated annual heat production based on bio-fuel of 40,000 MWh.

  1. Cost (to the extent possible):

The cost analysis is based on a model developed within the framework of an expert group set up by the Nordic Council of Ministers and presented in the report TemaNord:564. The calculations include:

1. How would the CO2 emissions have developed without the investment from the investor country, i.e. determination of a reference alternative.

2. The investment cost of the project.

3. Differences in operation costs before and after the investment.

4. Changes in other economic conditions, e-g- reduction of other environmentally damaging emissions.

5. The time before the project would have been implemented anyhow, or the economic lifetime of the project if it is reasonable to expect that the project alternatively would not have been implemented within the period in question.

The more detailed calculations are found in the table enclosed as the last page to this project report.

5) Mutually agreed assessment procedures:

Describe the procedures, including name of organizations involveda):

It is from the Swedish side intended that upon agreement with a central Latvian authority on reporting of JI-projects, this authority will assign a local organisation, which will be involved in the evaluation of the climate effects of this project. After an initial work in co-operation with STEM’s assigned consultant, this local organisation would take the main responsibility the continued measuring for JI-reporting.

a) Please ensure that detailed contact information for all organizations mentioned is reported under

section A.2 above.

More stable energy supply.

Improved working conditions and increased motivation.

Improved trade balance.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of social benefits?

No.

Describe economic benefits in detail:

Decreased fuel costs approx. 6 USD/MWh.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of economic benefits?

No.

E. Calculation of the contribution of activities implemented jointly projects that bring about real, measurable and long-term environmental benefits related to the mitigation of climate change that would not have occurred in the absence of such activities

  1. Estimated emissions without the activity (project baseline):

The bsasline has been revised in relation to the feasibility study made 1995.

In hind-sight it can be considered probable that mazout would continued to be the main fuel. The annual heat production would continue to be around 60,000 MWh. For the comparison of emission reduction, only the 40,000 MWh produced with biofuels is used as the source of emissions for the baseline calculation. The total CO2 emission during the plant’s lifetime would have been 195,000 ton. Emissions are calculated from elementary analysis of the assumed fuels.

2) Estimated emissions with the activity:

40,000 MWh of heat produced in a boiler with the annual average efficiency of 80 %. For the actual emissions the baseline emission calculation is done, assuming the heat production was made on mazout instead of bio-fuels. Emissions are calculated from elementary analysis of the assumed fuels.
