Background

The Alexandroupolis plant was originally a 450 MW plant[1], but as of 2021 it holds a license for 662 MW.[2] It has reportedly increased to over 800 MW capacity in April 2021, since RAE granted a license for 830 MW.[3][4][5]

The plant is scheduled to come online in sync with the new LNG supply terminal.[3]

In 2021 North Macedonia's power utility Elektrani na Severna Makedonija (ESM) signed a memorandum with Greece to invest 25% in the new power plant. This will secure gas-fired electricity supply for the country as they phase out coal.[6]
