Bulgaria's TPP Bobov Dol to Build Solar Plant

Green Energy

Bulgaria's coal-fired power plant Bobov Dol is investing about BGN 100 million (EUR 51.1 million) in the construction of a 100-MW (megawatt) solar plant which will down the track enable the production of green hydrogen to help cut the plant's carbon emissions, executive director Lyubomir Spasov told news portal SeeNews.

The power plant, which received a building permit in May, plans to start the construction works in early 2023, with completion of the solar park expected in 2025, Spasov said.

The solar park will also enable the diversification of energy sources at the plant, which currently uses lignite coal and biomass for power generation.

TPP Bobov Dol, established in 2000, is located in the region of Kyustendil, southwestern Bulgaria, and has an installed capacity of 630 MW.
