Kosovo B power station is a 680-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Obiliq, Kosovo.
The map below shows the plant, located several miles northwest of Pristina in Kosovo.
After conflict in Kosovo in the 1990s, the European Agency for Reconstruction (EAR) invited tenders for the rehabilitation of Kosovo power station unit B2. In June 2000, the contract was won by a consortium of RWE Power International.
The production capacity of Kosovo A power station and Kosovo B power station has been hampered by chronic technical problem, including a lightning strike in July 2002. Kosovo has been importing electricity in order to make up some for its deficit. Despite the imports for much of the 1999-2002 electricity was not guarantied 24 hours a day.
