Serbia: Serbia considering construction of four CHPPs and several LNG terminals, News Serbia Energy
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that the country is considering the construction of four gas-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plants, as well as several liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals in order to encourage the growth of its industrial sector.
President Vucic said in an interview that gas-fired power plant will be built in Kragujevac, Belgrade, Nis and Novi Sad, while the construction of LNG terminals is planned in western Serbia.
Last week, Serbian Ministry of Mining and Energy and Russian gas company Gazprom have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the development of combined heat and power plant projects in Serbia. The signed document provides the basis for joint efforts aimed at the construction of new and reconstruction of existing power plants in Serbia. On 7 March, at the start of construction of 200 MW CHPP in Pancevo, Director of Gazprom Energoholding Denis Fedorov said that the company is interested in the construction of up to four similar power plants in the country. Last year, China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) said that it is interested in the construction of combined heat and power plants in several cities in Serbia, predominantly in those with high air pollution.
