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 Alexandroupolis LNG Terminal [3] from which the power plant is expected to procure fuel.[6]

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.[7][8]

A December 2, 2021 article stated that the project was "expected to enter into commercial operation in 2023" and cost around $446.7 million.[6]
