Vegora, Florina Power Station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Greece and coal.|
The Vegora, Florina Power Station was a proposed 460-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Greece.
The map below shows the proposed location for the plant, in the Vegora area of the municipality of Filota.
The 460 MW coal-fired power station was proposed by GEK Terna, at a cost of $900 million euros, and a proposed start date of 2016-7.
The power station was not part of the country's 2010 energy plan, and was likely cancelled due to a 2009 decision by the Greek government to end hard coal imports in favor of using natural gas in future plants.
