Astakos Power Station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Greece and coal.|
Astakos Power Station was a proposed coal-fired power plant in Etoloakarnania, Greece. It is no longer being pursued due to a decision by the Greek government to end hard coal imports.
The map below shows Etoloakarnania, the approximate location the plant was proposed.
Astakos Power Station was a proposal by T-Power - a consortium of Edison and Hellenic Petroleum -- for a 600 megawatt project that Power in Europe described in 2008 as being in the "pre-proposal" stage.
The project was effectively blocked in 2009 due to a decision by the Greek government not end hard coal imports in favor of using natural gas in future plants.
