Montenegrin Minister of Economy Dragica Sekulic said earlier that an environmentally oriented reconstruction of coal-fired thermal power plant Pljevlja, worth some 40 million euros, will be completed over the period of next three years. According to Minister Sekulic, after the reconstruction, the operation of TPP Pljevlja will be optimized and all conditions for its operation at full capacity will be met.

The aim of the investment is to adapt the production of the plant to the environmental directives of the European Union. EPCG has invested a total of 60 million euros in capital projects at the plant in the last ten years. As a result, TPP Pljevlja can operate for 100,000 hours without any need for capital investments from now on.
