Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments

The proposed project consists of construction of a new 833 MW lignite fired unit at an existing 4,300 MWe lignite power plant operated by BOT Elektrownia Belchatow SA, accompanied by the associated investments i.e. modernisation of existing power units, additional flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) installations, new waste disposal system, a cooling tower for the new unit, etc.

The 833 MW power unit will be constructed on the basis of an EPC “turn-key”  contract with Alstom consortium. The project sponsor is BOT Elektrownia Belchatow S.A., which belongs to the holding “BOT Górnictwo i Energetyka SA” (BOT GiE), a State owned power generating company.

The project represents a major step in upgrading existing generating assets in Poland to ensure that they meet EU environmental legislation post 2008, notably requirements of the EU Large Combustion Plant and IPPC directives. The project is also an integral part of Polish governmental energy security program.

There is a project summary document available for this project.
