> Power and heating generation




Power plant Chvaletice, Czech Republic

Sev.en EC Chvaletice Power Plant became a part of the Group in 2013. Sev.en Energy bought the shares in this utility from the CEZ Group. This move marked the Group´s entry into the electricity and heating markets as a major new utility.

Kladno Heating plant, Czech Republic

Teplárna Kladno s.r.o. is one of a major producers of thermal and electrical energy. It is heat and electricity supplier for Kladno households and industry companies. It plays also an important role for stability of the Czech grid system thanks to providing a grid support services and as a back-up power source for Prague´s Metropolitan Area in the case of total black-out.

Kladno heating plant operates 5 production units (blocks B4, B5, B6, B7 and B8). Four of them are used for prompt heat and electricity production. The primary fuel is coal which can be co-burned with biomass. Modern technology and its operation ensure the maximum reduction of emissions released into the air.

In addition, company operates grid and technology for energy, heat and gas distribution in the industrial area of former Poldi United Steelworks. Company supplies Kladno households and public and private utilities throughout central heating system operate by TEPO – company 100% owned by local municipality. Kladno heating plant is the primary source of heat for City of Kladno.

In the period between 2010 and 2013, a new power unit was constructed to replace the obsolete Unit 3 built in 1976. The new power unit has capacity of 135 megawatts and represents a state-of-the-art fluidized-bed combustion technology. The boiler is equipped so as to comply with the new emission limits under the EU LCP Directive from its commissioning date. The new power unit is situated on the same place as earlier demolished original Boilers 1 and 2. The whole plant is also in compliance with new EU emission limits valid from August 2021.

Total annual production of the Electricity is approximately 2 – 2,2 TWh, heat delivery to the central heating system is 0,8 – 1 PJ.

Zlin Heating plant, Czech Republic

Teplárna Zlín s.r.o. is producer of thermal and electrical energy. It is heat and electricity supplier for Zlín households and industry companies located in the industrial area of former Baťa shoes company.

Zlín Heating plant operates 2 main production units with CFB boilers (blocks B31, B32) and 3 medium pressure gas boilers for heating. The primary fuel used for heat and electricity production is coal which can be co-burned with biomass and also biogas. Modern technology and its operation ensure the maximum reduction of emissions released into the air.

The second production unit operates by Teplárna Zlín is heating unit „Kocanda“. It ensures heat delivery for local households. It is an independent source with 4 gas hot water boilers, which serves as stand-by and peak source of heat.

In addition, Zlin heating plant operates technology and grid system for distribution of electricity, heat and gas in the former Baťa industry area.

Heating plant operates currently only modern technology which is in compliance with strčit environmental limits of EU and the Czech Republic and also new EU law which will be valid from 2021.

The annual production of electricity is approximately 140 -200 GWh, heat supply to the central heating system approximately 1 – 1,5 PJ.

> Commodity Trading


Sev.en Commodities is a major player in the Czech energy market and plans to become an important player in the European energy market. As a part of Sev.en Energy, the company trades in electricity and emission allowances on European wholesale markets through energy exchanges, brokers, and trade counterparts. The trading part of the group also provides production optimisation, hedging, and dispatch control for the Sev.en Energy Chvaletice power station in the Czech Republic. This generating capacity has been greened to a certain extent and preparations for its further upgrade and greening are currently under way.

“Creation of a central commodity trading unit is crucial to effective optimalization of the Group energy assets and margin maximization through active hedging and trading. The trading unit also plays a vital role in our expansion strategy and contributes through the expansion of trading activities as well as through commercial operations of acquired assets.”

> Lignite mining and land restoration


Traditionally rooted in the  conventional power‑generating business, we are engaged in  the extraction of coal. We are committed to the responsible mining of domestic lignite, thereby reducing the Czech Republic’s foreign energy dependence while enhancing our industry’s competitiveness and  scaling up affordable heat for  households.

Sev.en Energy operates two lignite mines: the CSA surface lignite mine and the Vrsany mine, both located in North Bohemia. With our operations, we contribute to preserving a signifi cant share of lignite in the Czech Republic’s energy mix.

square kilometres of land in the process of restoration

“We strive to limit the environmental impact of our business. More than two thirds of the area affected by our mining activities have been eclaimed or are undergoing reclamation (e.g. forestry, agriculture, hydro or parkland).”



We believe the renewal and creation of land resources in the area affected by industrial activity is a natural part of our work. It is a designed activity, and the individual parts (fields, forests, meadows, water surfaces) must functionally fit together. This creates an environmentally balanced landscape with a stable ecosystem that is economically efficient, healthy, hygienic and socially acceptable. Over the past 60 years, more than 7,000 hectares have been restored and returned to use in one of our localities – the Most region.

Here, along with mining, a reclamation process is under way to create a new multifunctional landscape that includes agricultural and forest land, smaller and larger water surfaces and land left for natural regeneration in appropriate habitats. In places where coal was recently mined, grapes are now harvested, mouflons and foxes roam the reclaimed landscape and we can catch a glimpse of sand martins that nest there every year
