Info

Plomin Power Station is a coal-fired power station near Plomin, Croatia. As of 2007, its production corresponded to 13% of Croatia's electricity needs.
The power plant consists of two boiler units, TE Plomin A built in 1969 and TE Plomin B built in 2000. Both are operated by Hrvatska elektroprivreda, and the latter is co-owned with RWE Power AG. They generate a total of 330 megawatt. In 2007 their total output was 2187 gigawatt hours; in 2009 it was 1927 GWh.
In 2011, the reconstruction of the Plomin A Power Station was proposed for a more efficient and safer functioning. The capacity of the new station, named Plomin C will be of 500 MW instead the 125 MW of the old one, fact that created ambiguities as it was mostly viewed as a new project rather than a reconstruction of the Plomin A plant. As a result, the Plomin Power Station capacity will increase from 335 MW to 710 MW. The upper limit of 335 MW was planned to be the maximum to be allowed at Plomin plant, an increase in capacity being possible only using gas rather than coal. However, the Croatian government supported the project, viewing it as “rational and cost effective”.
Plomin Power Station has a 340 metres (1,120 ft) tall chimney, which is the tallest constructed structure in Croatia.
