Background

The power station consists of two subcritical coal plants, Tisova I and II. Construction of Tisova I began in 1954, with four units of 50 MW to 57 MW each installed in 1958-59, followed by a 12.8 MW back-pressure turbine in 1959. Construction of Tisova II began in 1955, with three production units of 112 MW each put into operation between 1960 and 1961.[1]

During the first reduction wave of brown coal fired power stations in the early 1990's, two 112 MW units of Tisova II were put out of operation - the first unit in the end of 1990 and the second unit in the end of 1991. In 1998, one 50 MW turbine of Tisova I was cut off, and the installed capacity dropped to 295.8 MW.[1]
