Coal remains the key resource for Serbia electricity production

Without MB Kolubara as the most essential part of EPS, whether someone wants to see it or not, there is no stability and no power future of Serbia. In order for the Kolubara lignite to continue “lighting up” every other bulb in the country, it is necessary to invest 120 to 150 million euros in the coal mines annually, says Mr. Milorad Grčić, the Director of MB Kolubara.

The strategy for the development of the Mining Basin Kolubara has been run in a rather disorganized way over the past ten years. But what’s done is done. One such company cannot be crossed out because the coal is regularly mined and transported to thermal power units. Thermal power plants worth nothing without the mines. Without MB Kolubara as the most essential part of EPS, whether someone wants to see it or not, there is no stability and no power future of Serbia. Now we plan to open the mine Radljevo, to ensure stability in the coal production and population electricity supply. Kolubara lignite is a key factor in the fact that Serbia has enough power because its energy “lights up” every other bulb in the country, said Mr. Milorad Grčić, the Director of MB Kolubara in an interview for Balkan magazine.
