Most powerful Power Plants in EE...

OK, I really wanted to find bit more about EE energy sector, and decide to create this rather strange thread...

I'm looking for most powerful Power Plants in your country, (Russia excluded), only EE or CE countries... thanx..

I'm looking at most powerful :

Thermoelectric Power Plants
Nuclear Power Plants
Hydroelectric Power Plants
Wind Power Plants
Solar Power Plants,
Gas and Oil Power Plants...

Thanx,

my interest is to find how countries get there electricity, do they depend on imports of oil and gas, can smaller countries be self sufficient on there own energy supplies, how effective is renewable energy, any comment plz feel free to contribute...

OK to start, I found one in Croatia,
TE Plomin (coal burning plant)



2 Thermoelectric power plants joined in to one massive plant producing 310MW or annual production of 1800GW (about 10% of Croatian Energy consumption) I don't know if it is largest plant in Croatia, but it is one of the largest, looking for few more...

These are most powerful thermoelectric plants of Poland:

Bełchatów - 4,3 GW
Koziennice - 2,6 GW
Turów - 2 GW
Dolna Odra - 1,9 GW
Rybnik - 1,6 GW
Jaworzno - 1.2 GW
Łaziska - 1,1 GW

Biggest hydroelectric plants:

Młoty 750 MW (under construction)
Żarnowiec 680 MW
Porąbka-Żar 500 MW
Żydowo 152 MW

Wind power plants make only 60MW altogether, but many are under construction.

Poland has built it's first nuclear reactor in 1962, but since one of the few polish natural resources, coal, is available in excess, no nuclear power plants have been built, except few small experimental reactors, of which biggest one is 10MW.

HE Zakučac

Hydro-Electric Zakucac is largest HEPP in Croatia, produces 480MW or annually 2020GW of electricity

Croatia has 17 Hydroelectric power plants, 7 Thermo-eclectic power plants, 3 Wind Farms and 1 Solar power plant...
It Owns 50% of Krsko Power plant in Slovenia and owns several Thermoelectric power plants in Bosnia, TE Tuzla and TE Zenica...

Croatia is now seriously thinking of building its own nuclear power plant, and plans to sell its part in Krsko NE plant to finance this new venture, a feasibility study is now under consideration...

Ignalina Nuclear Power plant

building started in 1974, in 1983 december 31st, first block was turned on and started to built 3rd (2nd was u/c at that moment)
1987 september 31st 2nd block started it's work, 60% of 3rd block was already done, but soon lithuania's "Sajudis" for independence started and construction of 3rd block was halted and in 1989 completly shut down

both reactors are RMBK type (same as Chernobyl), each is 1500MW and are most powerful reactors in whole world (although one is already shut down because of pussy's in Western Europe, who know nothing about plant, but the fact that its the same type as Chernobyl, scares the shit out of them), dont know for sure but probably Ignalina is the most powerfull in EE, including Russia

reactor is cooled with water from nearby Druksiai lake (only a small part of it in the picture), which doesnt freeze even in coldest winter's

wow, pablonis, that is a monstrosity, I guess it produces almost all of Lithuania's needs, has Lithuania got any other power plant what happens if this one gets closed?


In Croatia there are now 4 wind farms, with many more planed, 3 are on Island of Pag, Ravine 1 with 7 turbines generating 6MW or 15 GW per year, Novalia 1 and 2 with 17MW output or 45GW annual output, and very large farm just of Dubrovnik with 52.5MW or 120GW annual output... Plans exist for 7-8 more farms in near future.. Croatia has plans to build at least 570 Wind Turbines generating 587MW or 1500GW of annual electricity output (about 7% of Croatian Electricity needs)...

Croatia is one of few European countries which produces electricity through renewable energy source which have little or no environmental damage/impact on local environment and global climate, almost 55% of all Croatian Electricity comes from renewable sources, this is one of the highest ratios in developed country... Croatia also has plans to build 8 more Hydroelectric power plants generating about 2500GW of electricity and at least dozen or so solar plants.

Macedonia has a lot of hydro electric power plants! I think Slovenia will be building a few more too

Here is some good info about them http://www.esmak.com.mk/index.php?id=34

Mavrovo hydro power system with its three power plants "Vrutok", `Raven' and "Vrben" is one of the biggest and the most complex system in the Macedonian electric power industry. Within the three hydro units there are 9 generating units installed with an installed capacity of 182 MW, and the annual electricity production which ranges around 500 GWh. This year the system marks its full four decades since the first unit was introduced in HPP"'Vrutok", the employees can be proud of themselves and the` achieved production of 14. 000 GWh.

And for thermal power plants http://www.esmak.com.mk/index.php?id=33

Bulgaria has the only Nuke plant that is capable of blowing up the whole region, especially since it's Soviet made
It's too bad the EU wants to shut it down, since it was rated one of the safest nuke plants after all the upgrades they've done on it.
But at least we're supposed to have a 2nd Nuke plant by 2010, so I'll be looking forward to that.
The only problems come from Romania, who is afraid our engineers might spill some rakya on the control board and blow them up

it was never working in full power, it was built to produce power to whole western USSR (baltics, Belarus, kaliningrad, western russia), now it produces 80% of lithuania's electricity (although easilly could 100%), also Kaliningrad and most of Latvia and Belarus is relying on energy from Ignalina, which is very cheap, other 20% of Lithuania's are prodused by several big ones and numerous very small ones

Elektrenai plant at the moment is producing only 1/15 of what it could (8 blocks, 6-200 MW 2-300 MW, whole plant 1800 MW),


Kruonis Plant has four units, each 400Mw, so 1600MW combined; Kaunas HydroPlant is 100.8MW

Kaunas ThermoPlant 170 MW


Kaunas HydroPlant 100.8 MW




Mazeikiai thermoplant (300 MW), which serves "Mazeikiu Nafta" (oil refinery), but after upgrade will handle more

also three thermoplants in Vilnius, 100-500 MW

the power of all plants instaled in lithuania combined is really huge - 6.54 GW, and that is first place /per head in Europe, that means in the world too, and Lithuania will remain in top positions, even after closing Ignalina, because of upgrades to old one's and new projects, like Wind farms in Klaipeda region (47 MW now, 700 MW ~2015), third-modern reactor in Ignalina (2015-2020) and few more

The Krško Nuclear Power Plant is a 650 MWe Westinghouse designed 2 Loop Pressurized Water Reactor. This unit is similar to those built at Ginna, Point Beach, Kewaunee, Prairie Island as well as at Angra in Brazil and in the Philippine Islands. The plant, an important electrical power supply source for both Slovenia and Croatia, is located between Ljubljana and Zagreb on the Sava River.

Wrong - Latvia gets from Ignalina 5 - 10% of its total electrical energy needs. Over the next 10 years we will not need it anymore.
Latvia is developing diversified energy production system, we will not have very large power plants and will not be too much dependant on one kind of energy.

Currently the biggest are:
- Riga 2nd thermal plant - 1 279 MW
- Plavinas hydropowerplant - 869 MW
- Riga 1st thermal plant - 616 MW
- Riga hydropowerplant - 402 MW
- Kegums hydropowerplant - 264 MW
Meanwhile installed wind power plants exceed 50 MW now and will increase fast over the next years, the same about other "alternative" ones.

So Bełchatów is the most powerful in CE.

It's also largest conventional power plant in Europe. Anyone knows if there are larger nuclear plants?

Poland has coal and water plants. after disaster in 1986 government canceled construction of nuclear plant in Żarnowiec near Gdansk. Now we generate much more electricity we need.

This is a map of the power plants of the largest energy producer (DEH - national company - )



Greece is second largest producer in EU in coal (lignite) , so many thermal power plants burn coal.

Important contribution comes also from the hydroelectric plants (22 hydroelectric plants total production 3,060 MW (354 MW to be added - plants under construction).

The largest production comes from the region of western macedonia , where there are 6 thermal power plants of total production 4,438 MW.

Among these five the largest are the coal burning power plant of Kardia and Agios Dimitrios , both situated near the city of Kozani :

Kardia power plant (1,250 MW) (coal)


Agios Dimitrios power plant (1,595 MW) (coal)



Other major thermoelectric coal burning power plants are :

Megalopolis (Peloponnese) - 850 MW
Ptolemaida (western macedonia) - 620 MW
Amyntaio (western macedonia) - 600 MW
Florina (western macedonia) - 300 MW

The largest natural gas power plant is situated near Komotini , Thrace region
(485 MW)



Other major natural gas power plant is :

Agios georgios Keratsini (Attica) - 360 MW

Largest combined oil/gas power plant is situated in Attica near Athens (Lavrio)
(1,2 GW)



Other major oil power plants are :

Aliveri (Evia island ) - 380 MW
Chania (Crete island ) - 321 MW
Rodos (Rhodos island) - 207 MW


Largest hydroelectric plant is situated near Agrinio , central greece (438 MW)


Other major hydroelectric plants are:

Polyfito (central macedonia) - 375 MW
Pournari,Arta (Epirus) - 333 MW
Kastraki (central greece) - 320 MW
Veroia (central macedonia) - 315 MW
Drama (central macedonia) - 300 MW
Metsovo (Epirus) - 215 MW

Finally the largest aeolic park (wind power plant ) in Greece is the unified park of Kechros (region of Thrace-northeastern Greece) - 63 MW

Other major aeolic parks are:

Eastern Crete - 53 MW
South Evia island - 43 MW
Panachaiko (north peloponnese) - 35 MW

Total energy production in Greece from renewable energy sources today (2005) is ~500 MW

For more info regarding Greece and renewable energy sources have a look at the relative thread in Hellenic Agora (greek forum)
