Proposed Coal-Fired Power Stations
- The Braila Power Station Expansion is a proposal by Termoelectrica and a consortium comprising E.ON Kraftwerke and Enel for "for the development of the Braila power plant project, for a new 800 MW coal-fired production capacity." The three companies announced in June 2008 that they had signed a Memorandum of Understanding relating to the project. The consortium states that "the project will also utilize the existing assets from the power plant currently in operation ... Based on the results of the feasibility study, expected by the end of 2008, the parties will decide whether or not to implement the power plant project." The media release also states that "the plant will be prepared for CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) -technology."
- The Doicesti Power Station is a 320 MW power station in Doiceşti, Romania, owned by Termoelectrica. In 2011 Termoelectrica and China Huadian Engineering Co Ltd said they had agreed to build two new 250 MW coal plants at the Doicesti station, equipped with an installation for gas desulphurisation and capture, and transport and storage of slag and ash. The Chinese government is considering investing EUR700 million in the project.
