Project-level coal details

  • Coal source(s): Rembas coal mine, Serbia


In April 2013 Turkish industrial firm Teknotes signed an agreement to build a 320MW lignite-fired power plant and expand a mine in Despotovac. The deal was between Teknotes, the mayor of Despotovac, and the director of state-owned lignite mining firm Resavica. Investment in the project was expected to total over $700 million. A new pit at the Rembas Coal Mine mine will be developed to supply the power plant.[1]

The project was not mentioned in the new energy strategy of Serbia approved by the government in May 2015 and awaiting approval from the parliament.
