Thermal Power Plants Nikola Tesla will achieve 99.7% electricity generation plan in 2013, and most likely this fiscal year will round up with a positive financial result, unlike in 2012, when it was in the minus.

Mihailo Nikolic, director of TENT A and Goran Lukic, director of TENT B said that all plants are available on the network in Obrenovac power plants. In the TENT A, blocks A2 and A4, fulfilled the annual production plan and by the end of December (or calendar year) a monthly record of all times could be knocked down. It is similar in the power plant in Usce, which will, with fulfillment of the annual plan, probably break the annual production record. After some difficulties in operation were noticed at block TENT B2, it is proposed to form a Commission which will consider the heating place in an active part of the stator of generator B2. In the Commission, in addition to experts of EPS and TENT, should be the Institut Belgrade Nikola Tesla and Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

TPP Morava in Svilajnac, after 90 days of continuous operation, will be turned off 31.12.2013 and again it will be back in operation 08.01.2014. after completion of care. This smallest power plant of TENT was supposed to fulfill the production plan for 2013, announced CEO Marija Stevanovic.
