Croatia has no operating coal mines[1] and one coal-fired power station. Coal for the Plomin Power Station is imported through Plomin Port. (The Plomin power station originally sourced coal from mines in and near the nearby town of Lubin).

Existing coal-fired power stations

  • Plomin Power Station, a 330 megawatt plant comprising two generating units. The plant is located at Plomin, Croatia. The first generating unit, referred to as Plomin 1, is a 110 MW unit which was commissioned in 1969. The second generating unit, referred to as Plomin 2, is a 220 megawatt unit which was commissioned in 2000.[2] The Plomin 1 plant is owned and operated by HEP Proizvodnja. The Plomin 2 plant is owned by TE Plomin, a 50:50 joint venture between HEP Proizvodnja and RWE Power.[3] The Plomin 2 plant is operated and maintained by HEP under a long-term contract with TE Plomin.[4]

HEP is proposing to build a new 500MW unit to replace the aging Plomin 1 plant.[5]

Proposed new coal-fired power stations

  • Plomin C Thermal Power Plant, is a proposed 500 megawatt unit to replace the Plomin 1 unit. If commissioned, the Plomin power station would have a nameplate capacity of 710 MW.[6]

Coal import infrastructure

Coal for the Plomin Power Station is imported through Plomin Port.
