Morava power station
Morava power station is a 120-megawatt lignite-fired power station in Pomoravlje, Serbia.
The plant is located on the right bank of the river Velika Morava near the town of Svilajnac.
In December 2021, it was reported that state-owned power utility Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS) intended to convert its Morava thermal power plant from coal to fossil gas. Coal power plant Morava was expected to shut down by the end of 2023. It was operating under the opt-out mechanism, an implementation alternative under the EU’s Large Combustion Plants Directive (LCPD) which provides the possibility for an exemption of individual plants from national compliance regimes. In exchange, the plants cannot be operated for more than 20,000 operational hours between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2023.
