The 200 MW Pančevo cogeneration power plant (TE-TO Pančevo) is expected to be built by 2020, and the combined production of heat and power (CHP) is scheduled to start in the last quarter of that year, said Aleksandar Antić, Serbia’s minister of mining and energy.

Antić made the statement after meeting with Denis Fyodorov, Director General of Gazprom Energoholding, at the 9th St. Petersburg International Gas Forum. Gazprom Energoholding, part of Russia’s gas giant Gazprom, is an investor in the EUR 180 million combined-cycle power plant TE-TO Pančevo.

According to the press release by the Ministry of Mining and Energy, participants in the meeting jointly concluded that the TE-TO Pančevo project is proceeding as planned.

That means the plant will be constructed by 2020, as well as that combined heat and power generation will start in Q4 2020, Antić said.

Gazprom Energoholding is also interested in the development of new gas-fired power plants, as well as in the development of renewable energy sources

Denis Fyodorov said that Gazprom Energoholding is also interested in the development of new gas-fired power plants, as well as in the development of renewable energy sources, primarily from hydro and wind.

The Serbian delegation, which participated in the 9th St. Petersburg International Gas Forum at the plenary session on strategic priorities of international energy cooperation, included Dragutin Matanović, an advisor to the Serbian president, and Dušan Bajatović, general manager of Serbia’s state gas company Srbijagas.

This will be the first of Gazprom Energoholding’s power plants outside of Russia

The construction of TE-TO Pančevo, which will deliver power and heat to the Pančevo oil refinery, operated by oil and gas company NIS, majority owned by Gazprom, as well as to the market, began in March 2019. China’s Shanghai Electric Group was selected as the contractor for turnkey construction, while the main equipment – gas turbines and the generator – will be supplied by Italy’s Ansaldo Energia.

The new CHP plant will be 51%-49% owned by Gazprom Energoholding and NIS. This will be the first of Gazprom Energoholding’s power plants outside of the Russian Federation.
