Expansion plans

In 2011 Enel proposed a 900 MW coal plat in Galati. The investment is expected to reach almost EUR 1.3 billion.[1]

The prefecture of Galati city approved the local urban plan (PUZ) regarding the building of the station in September 2011. Building works for the plant are expected to commence at the end of 2012 and finalized three to four years later.[1]

In October 2013 the Romanian country manager of Enel declared in a business magazine that the company was canceling the expansion project, citing economic reasons. The proposed plant was described as 800 MW.[2]
