ZAGREB (Croatia), December 18 (SeeNews) - Croatia's state-controlled oil pipeline operator Jadranski Naftovod (Janaf) [ZSE:JNAF-R-A] said it commissioned its first-ever photovoltaic (PV) power plant - a project with installed capacity of 90 kW.

The construction of the PV plant was financed from Janaf’s own funds, the company said in a statement on Thursday, without providing the value of the project.

The PV plant, built on 600 square metres of roof space at Janaf's Zitnjak-Zagreb oil terminal, will produce 108,540 kWh of electricity per year, resulting in annual savings of some 70,000 kuna ($11,400/9,300 euro). It will reduce Janaf's  CO2 emissions by 65 tonnes on annual level.

“The commissioning of the solar photovoltaic power station can be regarded as Janaf’s first step towards contemplating and implementing a long-term low carbon development strategy," the head of Janaf's management board, Stjepan Adanic, noted.

Janaf controls terminals on the island of Krk, as well as in Sisak, Virje, Slavonski Brod and Zitnjak, and operates 631 kilometres of pipelines. It has 1.94 million cubic metres of storage capacity for oil and 222,000 cu m of capacity for the storage of petroleum products.
