Background

Adamow power station is a five-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 600 MW. The plant was completed between 1964 and 1966, and is owned by ZEPAK, which is co-owned by Elektrim SA (39%), the state (50%), and employees (10%).[8]

The decommissioning of the facility is planned by the end of 2017. Poland has repeatedly sought the extension of the plant's operations with the European Commission.[9]

The plant was closed down on January 1, 2018.[10]

In 2022, ZEPAK announced that they had launched a tender to convert the power plant into a 600 MW gas-fired power plant, noting that construction is likely to begin at the end of November, 2022.[11] This repowering is also noted in Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne SA's plan for the adaptation of the electricity transmission system between 2020 and 2029.[12]
