Piombino power station is a proposed 900-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Piombino, Italy.
The map below shows Piombino, the approximate location where the plant would be built.
In July 2014 India's JSW Group-owned JSW Steel put in bids to purchase three rolling mills from Italian steel maker Lucchini. Plans include a 900 MW coal-fired power station in the industrial perimeter of the town of Piombino. Piombino had voted in a referendum against a previous proposed coal power plant, more than 20 years ago.
In November 2014 Lucchini sold its steel mills to Algeria's Cevital Group, rather than JSW Steel. Cevital Group said it will build two electric furnaces and a new roller (to supplement the existing ones) for two million tonnes of steel production per year, but makes no mention of plans for a power station.
As of 2017 there has been no movement on building a coal plant, and plans appear abandoned.
