Belarusian’s Deputy Energy Minister has announced that an unnamed Chinese firm has expressed an interest in developing a 400 MW coal fired cogeneration plant in the country.
Mr Mikhail Mikhadyuk told the Belarus Investment Forum this week that the Chinese investor was interested but declined to name them.
The Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Ministry in Belarus is actively working on the commercial exploitation of the Lelchitsy deposit of brown coal.
“The results of the work will be used to consider the feasibility of building a coal-fired combined heat and power plant,” said the official. The minister stressed that the construction of the cogeneration plant will be possible only if it is economically viable.
