Zeran power station (Polish: Elektrociepłownia Żerań) is a 601-megawatt (MW) coal-fired heat power station in Warszawa, Poland.

A 490 MW gas plant is under construction at the site and, upon completion, will replace the coal plant.

Background

The coal plant became operational in 1954. The plant underwent modernization 1997-2001 when it was taken over by Vattenfall, and was later bought by PGNiG.[1]

In October 2017, PGNiG Termika officially started construction of a new 490 MW combined-cycle power plant at the site to replace the aging coal-fired units.[2] It was planned for operation in 2020.[3] However, as of March 2021 construction is reportedly ongoing.[4]
