SLOVAKIA'S dominant power producer Slovenské Elektrárne (SE) is not considering investing in a new thermal power plant.

SLOVAKIA'S dominant power producer Slovenské Elektrárne (SE) is not considering investing in a new thermal power plant.

Alena Salamonová, chief of SE's section for relations with the regulatory office, said in mid May that the SE investment plan focuses exclusively on reconstructing existing thermal power plants in Vojany and Nováky, and the construction of new units in these facilities, the SITA newswire wrote.
Therefore, SE is not planning a greenfield thermal power plant investment. SE has already started replacing old boilers in the Vojany thermal power plant for steam/gas boilers. This investment will require at least Sk7 billion (€212 million). The installed capacity of these steam/gas units is to reach roughly 400 megawatts (MW). SE plans to invest approximately Sk110 billion (€3.3 billion) in the Slovak energy sector by 2013.

Two companies have recently shown interest in the construction of new thermal power plants in Slovakia: Československá Energetická Spoločnosť (ČES), which wants to build one in Trebišov; and Chemko, which has stated its intention to construct one in Strážske.
