The initial installed power output of the plant was 6 x 200 MW. Units 1 and 2 were commissioned in 1970, Units 3 and 4 in 1971, and Units 5-6 in 1977. Unit 1 was decommissioned in 1994.[1]

Ownership was set to be transferred from CEZ Group to Sev.en Energy for CZK 2 billion in 2024.[2] However, in October 2020, the parties reached an agreement to transfer ownership of the coal plant to Sev.en Energy by December 31, 2020, instead of in 2024 as initially planned. The accelerated timeline was expected to allow the company to speed up the process of modernizing and upgrading the plant to meet all emission standards by 2021.[3][4]
