Bulgaria's Bobov Dol TPP plans to build PV plant
Bulgarian thermal power plant (TPP) Bobov Dol intends to build a photovoltaic (PV) park at the site of a former ash dump in Dupnitsa municipality, news portal SeeNews reported citing data published by the regional environment inspectorate.
The coal-fired power plant plans to deploy solar panels on the surface of its recultivated ash pond Suho Dere, which spreads on some 123 hectares near the village of Palatovo, according to the investment proposal. The estimated cost of the project was not disclosed.
The coal-fired power plant located in Kyustendil region, in southwestern Bulgaria, has an installed capacity of 630 MW (megawatt). In 2008, the government sold the power plant to local consortium Energy MK, which remains its sole owner.
