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. 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.  (See also Poland and coal)
