December 6 (SeeNews) - The operator of Slovenia’s Sostanj coal-fired power plant TES, state-controlled Holding Slovenske Elektrarne (HSE), reconnected its 600 MW Unit 6 to the grid after shutting it down almost two months ago to save fuel, it said.
The restart of Unit 6 of Sostanj, which has been suspended since October 14 due to the lack of coal, will definitely contribute to solving the liquidity difficulties of HSE, the power plant operator said in a press release on Monday.
The unit was temporarily disconnected from the grid due to the lower amounts of coal produced at the Velenje mine caused by geomechanical problems and coal phase-out measures introduced by the government.
HSE initially planned to restart the unit on November 2 but later it said the shutdown would last longer. Meanwhile, Velenje coal mine concluded two contracts, worth 42.5 million euro ($44.0 million) and 7.9 million euro respectively, for the import of Indonesian coal with Swiss company Petraco to compensate for the reduced amount of locally produced coal.
Slovenia's net electricity production declined by 54% year-on-year to 530 GWh in October, as the output of the country's thermal power plants fell by 53%, while the sole nuclear power plant Nuklearna Elektrarna Krsko was shut down for regular maintenance.
