Montenegrin TPP Pljevlja to undergo eco-reconstruction

The Consortium DEC International-Bemax-BB Solar-Permonte was commissioned by Elektropriveda Crne Gore (EPCG) to implement the project for ecological reconstruction of TPP Pljevlja-Unit I. The project, along with adherence to the strictest emission limits, will turn Montenegro into the first country in the region to have carried out a complete technical and ecological remediation of a nearly forty-year-old facility. Completion of the project, valued at above EUR 54 million, is expected to extend the operating lifetime of the thermal power plant by 30 years, said EPCG CEO Igor Noveljich.

“The key point is that, once the project is completed, the environmental impact of the thermal power plant will be reduced to the minimum in conformance with EU’s strictest environmental standards. The extension of the operating lifetime of the plant means a steady employment for 1200 people that are currently working in the thermal power plant and in the mine, but also a steady business for a number of other companies engaged in the reproduction system and their employees”, Noveljich added.
