|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Bulgaria and coal.|
Lom Power Station is a proposed 400- to 600-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Bulgaria.
The map below shows Lom, the approximate location where the plant would be built.
An open-cast mine at the Lom Lignite coal field is being proposed by Enemona, which has a permit issued by the Bulgarian Council of Ministers for coal prospecting and exploration in the area of Momin Brod, where the Lom Lignite field is located. More than 14% of the Bulgarian lignite deposits are concentrated at the location. According to the company, "The extracted coal could enable a Thermal Power Plant with a capacity of 400 - 600 MW to operate for a period of 60 years."
The project is not listed in the company's 2013 investor bulletin, and appears to have been abandoned.
