Background

Astakos Power Station was a proposal by T-Power - a consortium of Edison and Hellenic Petroleum -- for a 600 megawatt project that Power in Europe described in 2008 as being in the "pre-proposal" stage.[1]

Project blocked

The project was effectively blocked in 2009 due to a decision by the Greek government not end hard coal imports in favor of using natural gas in future plants.[2]
