Proposed Coal-Fired Power Stations

  • Matra Power Station, is a coal fired co-generation plant proposed by Matrai Erömu, which is majority-owned by RWE and the the Hungarian Electricity Works, to have an installed capacity of 2,000 megawatts. However, RWE does not list the project as being amongst its "power plant new-build" list.[2] On its website RWE states that "the company operates an 800 MW lignite-fired power plant that is supplied with coal from two opencast mines. Matra is Hungary’s second largest power producer and extracts half of the country's lignite." It also stated that in late 2006 and early 2007 two topping gas turbines (TGT) were commissioned at the plant which "have raised the capacity of the connected power plant units by some 10 per cent."[3] (See also Hungary and coal)
