New power stations greenlighted

THE ECONOMY Ministry approved construction of six power stations last year. That was a significantly lower figure compared with the previous year, when it approved construction of 25 power stations. The Economy Ministry explained the drop by pointing to the position of grid operator Slovak Electricity Transmission System (SEPS), which in turn highlighted the influence of new power stations on the security and reliability of the national grid, failures to meet requirements set by the law and incomplete applications, the SITA newswire reported in January this year.

When a company wants to build a power station in Slovakia, it must obtain a certificate from the Economy Ministry that its investment plan is in accordance with Slovakia’s long-term energy policy. In 2012 Eurocom & Co, SPP, CPP Zemplín, Kosit, Racen and Energo Block obtained certificates. The total installed capacity of the planned facilities exceeds 125 MW. Most of the facilities are projected as natural-gas fired facilities generating electricity as well as heat. The largest is a project by CPP Zemplín in Strážske, which has a planned capacity of 70 MW.
