Kamengrad Thermal Power Plant
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Bosnia-Herzegovina and coal.|
Kamengrad Thermal Power Plant is a proposed 430-megawatt (MW) brown coal fired power station in Bosnia.
The map below shows Kamengrad, the approximate location where the plant would be built.
In November 2011 it was reported that Bosnia's Federation plans to invest 620 million euro ($827 million) in the construction of two thermal power units with a capacity of 215 megawatts (MW) each. It would be built near the Kamengrad coal mine, located near Sanski Most. Construction on the units is planned to be five years.
However there appears to be no news of the power station since the announcement, and the project was likely abandoned.
Plan may be revived with Chinese financing
In September 2017 it was reported that China Energy Engineering Corp (CEEC) was in talks about investing 1 billion euros (US$1.2 bln) in a 430 MW coal power project in Bosnia, including development of the Kamengrad coal mine in Sanski Most, northeast Bosnia. CEEC was in talks with Bosnian private company Lager, which holds a 30-year concession to operate the Kamengrad coal mine, and talks were reportedly well underway and could soon lead to an agreement. The mine has 115 million tonnes of proven coal reserves and an estimated 400 million tonnes of untapped coal reserves.
