January 10 (Renewables Now) - PPC Renewables, a subsidiary of Greek utility PPC SA (ATH:PPC), is looking for a partner for the construction of a biomass combined heat and power (CHP) plant with a capacity of 25 MWe and 45 MWth.

The company in late December invited expressions of interest for the project, expected to become Greece's largest biomass CHP plant. It will be located close to an existing thermal power plant of PPC in Amyntaio, in the Greek region of Western Macedonia.

PPC Renewables has started development of the project and wants to find a strategic partner to participate in the company that will develop, finance, build and operate the facility. The partner is expected to take a majority stake in it.  

The deadline for expressions of interest is January 29, with requests for clarification accepted by January 15. After an evaluation of the expressions of interest, eligible partners will be provided with a request for proposal (RfP).
