Background

The power station proposed for Beotia was sponsored by Mytilineos and Endesa, which have formed a joint venture company named Endesa Hellas. The power station would have an installed capacity of 600 megawatts at an estimated cost of 890 million euros.

A securities analyst reported in May 2007 that the company had submitted an application for a power generation license.[1] In July 2007, Endesa Hellas reported that the company aimed to have the "clean coal" plant online by the first half of 2013. (It also flagged that plans for a "clean coal" plant of unstated capacity were under development for a location in Albania).[2]

Project blocked

The project was effectively blocked in 2009 due to a decision by the Greek government to end hard coal imports in favor of using natural gas in future plants.[3]
