AES’ TPP in Galabovo Completely Ready for Operations in the Winter Season

AES’ TPP in Galabovo is completely ready for operations in the upcoming winter season. The newest and most modern coal-fired power plant in Bulgaria has 436 000 tons of lignite coal in stock which is 50% more than the quantities required by the regulations. This available amount of coal in stock would guarantee the normal operations of the power plant at full load for one month. In addition, AES’ TPP in Galabovo has in stock the required quantities of liquid fuel and limestone needed for the desulphurization process.

The power plant has successfully completed the annual scheduled and preventive maintenance campaign of its two units. Currently, the generation capacities are available to the energy system and are ready for operations during the winter season.

AES’ TPP in Galabovo is the only entirely newly-built coal-fired power plant in Bulgaria in the last 40 years. It is the most flexible and high-tech coal-fired power plant in Bulgaria, thus crucial to the country’s energy security. Moreover, AES’ TPP in Galabovo is of key importance to providing reliable energy at socially affordable prices for the customers as it uses only local energy resources such as the lignite coal mined in the state-run Maritza East Mines.
