In a 2011 presentation by Enel, the company stated it was pursuing an 870MW coal-fired power station in partnership with Duferco. The power station was listed as a greenfield project close to the port of Bar, with a proposed cost of 1,5Bln€. Enel said the feasibility study had been completed.[1] Duferco's website listed the project as a "greenfield 800 MW imported coal power-plant project" between Dufenergy Italia and Enel.[2]

The Bar project was not mentioned in the "Strategic Environmental Assessment for Energy Development Strategy in Montenegro by 2030," released in 2014, and was likely cancelled.

Years later planned Bar LNG Terminal and associated Bar gas power station were announced.[3]
