Pulawy power station (Vattenfall)
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Poland and coal.|
Pulawy power station (Vattenfall) was a proposed 1620-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Poland.
An 800-900 MW gas-fired power station was proposed instead in 2012, which was later replaced by the 100 MW coal-fired Pulawy power station (Grupa Azoty) in 2017.
The map below shows Pulawy, the approximate location where the plant would be built.
Background on Plant
Swedish-based Vattenfall proposed to build a 1620 MW coal-fired power plant in Pulawy through its Polish unit in 2008. In 2010 it was reported that Vattenfall decided to cancel the project, along with a coal plant in Opalenie, but may continue plans with building a power block for its Warsaw-based Siekierki power & heat plant.
The rights for the power project were transferred to ZA Puławy S.A. and PGE Górnictwo i Energetyka Konwencjonalna S.A. in 2011, who are pursuing plans for an 800-900 MW combined cycle natural gas plant instead. On December 23, 2014, Grupa Azoty purchased 100% of the shares in Puławy Power Plant from PGE GiEK, and said it plans to build a 400 MW gas plant.
In 2017 it was reported that Grupa Azoty Pulawy (Azoty Group) had decided to build a 90-100 MW coal-burning power plant unit instead of the gas-fuelled unit which had been planned, the Pulawy power station (Grupa Azoty).
