1997 – 2007: MODERNIZATIONS AT THE HEATING COMPANY
The years from 1997 to 2007 mark a period of modernization of the heating company where a number of innovations have been made by successfull utilization of European funds under the PHARE Program granted by the World Bank, and under a program funded by the Dutch government.
In that period, the first co-generation installation for heat and electricity in Bulgaria was constructed, based on engines fueled by natural gas.
As a result of that, the work of the Company team was noticed and in 2002 and 2004 the Company was awarded twice by the Ministry of Econony with an honorary diploma for highest results achieved among the heat supply companies, and in 2002 the Chamber of Power Engineers appointed the Director Mr. Iliya Nikolaev as the Power Engineer of the year.

In June 2008 the Company was officially renamed to Dalkia Varna EAD.
During these years, Dalkia imposed new standards in management of its activity and of work with customers, and highly improved the services provided in Varna.
