Background

The Detmarovice Power Station is a black coal-fired power station owned and operated by the CEZ Group. It consists of four 200 MW subcritical units commissioned in 1975-76. The power station was originally formed as part of the Ostrava-Karviná Power Stations; since 1990, it has been an independent organizational unit.[1]

Unit 1 (200 MW) was retired in 2019.[2]

In 2021 CEZ Group announced they would close all of the coal units at the end of the 2022-2023 heating season.[3] They plan to build a gas-fired cogeneration unit in its place.
