AES Bulgaria said that its coal-fired thermal power plant AES Galabovo generated 2,830 GWh of electricity in the first nine months of 2022.
The statement from the company said that the plant covered about 10 % of Bulgaria’s total electricity consumption in the same period. In July, the plant generated 370,725 MWh of electricity, which was the highest monthly production so far in 2022. However, electricity generation in September stood at 187,699 MWh, 39 % less compared to the previous month.
In 1999, US AES Corporation purchased the majority stake in Bulgaria’s Maritsa East 1 power plant, subsequently renamed AES Galabovo in 2009. AES completed the full acquisition of the thermal power plant from Ireland’s Consolidated Continental Commerce Limited in 2005.
