Likewise, Idoia Madariaga, head of the Innovation and Financing Projects Area of Nasuvinsa, and Javier Martínez León, engineer in charge of the project, were present at the event.
The creation of the heat plant in Txantrea aims to support the city of Pamplona’s goal of reducing CO 2 emissions and improving energy efficiency by providing renewable and sustainable energy for both the neighborhood’s homes and buildings. public. This infrastructure is positioned as a reference at the state and European level, standing out for its innovative approach to the use of local forest biomass, composed mainly of wood chips, as the main source of energy for its boilers.
