Proposed Coal-Fired Power Stations

  • Piast Ruch Power Station is a proposal by RWE for a 800 megawatt power station to be built on the Piast Ruch II coal mine in the village of Wola in Silesia. The project will be a joint venture between RWE (75%) and Kompania Węglowa (25%), which owns the minesite and will supply the coal. It is proposed that the 1.5 billion euro project be commissioned in 2015.[1] In June 2008 RWE and Kompania Węglowa stated that the project would consume approximately 2.5 million tonnes of locally produced hard coal a year. The joint venturers have flagged that they are aiming to get approvals for the project in 2009-2010. [2] (See also Poland and coal)
