Background

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.[1]

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.[2]

As of 2017 there has been no movement on building a coal plant, and plans appear abandoned.
