An event celebrating the launch of construction of a combined cycle thermal power plant (TPP) took place in Pancevo, Serbia.
Europe The Pancevo TPP will be the first of the Gazprom Energoholding Group
With a power capacity of some 200 MW, the Pancevo TPP will be the first of the Gazprom Energoholding Group’s projects to be implemented outside of the Russian Federation, as well as the first combined cycle thermal power plant in Serbia.
The TPP’s two-hectare construction site is located in an industrial district in the immediate vicinity of the Pancevo Refinery that belongs to NIS a.d. Novi Sad (part of the Gazprom Neft Group).
The heat generated by the TPP will serve the needs of the Pancevo Refinery, while the plant’s electric power output will be sold in Serbia and neighboring countries.
The Pancevo TPP is slated for commissioning in 2020. ■
