Czech Coal to open new coal power plant by 2021
The mining companies Czech Coal wants to build a new coal-fired power plant and connect it to the power grid by 2021. The firm has signed a contract with the grid’s administrator for the capacity of 660 MW. The new power plant, which should cost around 30 billion crowns, could be built near the town of Most, in northern Bohemia. The Czech branch of the environmental organization Greenpeace said the plan to build a new coal-fired power plant was unacceptable.
