Energy company Gazprom Energoholding Serbia, which is close to complete the construction of the 200 MW cogeneration power plant in Pančevo, is also developing a 200 MW wind farm.

In an interview with Kommersant Denis Fyodorov, Director General of Gazprom Energoholding, said the company has been working on the development of a wind power project since 2018.

Vestas could be a partner for the wind project in Serbia

The company has discussed with Danish wind giant Vestas about possible projects outside of Russia, in particular in Serbia, he revealed.

Since 2018 the company has been developing a wind farm project of up to 200 MW capacity. Due to coronavirus restrictions, progress is not as fast as the company planned, Fyodorov said.

The first man of Gazprom Energoholding said the pandemic also caused a delay in another project in Serbia, the 200 MW Pančevo cogeneration power plant. The gas-powered facility was scheduled to start operations in the last quarter of 2020.

Fyodorov: We are considering three more gas power plants in Serbia

The coronavirus restrictions in Serbia and China created a setback, but the company is doing everything to put Pančevo combine cycle power plant (CCPP Pančevo) on the grid by mid-year, he underlined.

The facility in Pančevo will be Gazprom Energoholding’s first power plant outside of the Russian Federation.

Fyodorov said the state-owned company, 100% controlled by Gazprom, is considering three more gas power plants of the same capacity in Serbia.

Ansaldo Energia is an equipment supplier

The construction of TE-TO Pančevo began in March 2019. It will deliver power and heat to the Pančevo oil refinery, operated by oil and gas company Naftna Industrija Srbije (NIS), as well as to the market. Gazprom owns 51% of NIS and the Government of Serbia controls the remaining stake.

China’s Shanghai Electric Group was selected as the turnkey contractor, while the main equipment – gas turbines and the generator – will be supplied by Italy’s Ansaldo Energia.

The new CHP plant will be split 51% to 49% between Gazprom Energoholding and NIS.
