Elektroprivreda Crne Gore AD planned to develop 225 MW Pljevlja Thermal Power Plant Unit I Ecological Reconstruction Project, in Plevlja, Serbia and Montenegro. Consortium of DEC International, Bemax, BB Solar and Permonte was the EPC contractor. STEAG Energy Services was the preliminary design consultant. The project included the construction of a desulphurisation system, the system for reduction of nitrogen oxide, construction of the modern waste water system and improvement of operation of the existing electrostatic precipitator. Upon completion of the reconstruction, Pljevlja's first Unit would be able to operate for at least 20 years, in compliance with new directives governing limit values on emission of pollutants. The thermal power plant had an original capacity of 225 MW. The construction period was 39 months. The project responded to Belt and Road Initiative and would enable the Pljevlja power generation and coal mining complex to operate for the next 20 to 30 years.
