Gazprom has started the construction of a 200 MW combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant in Serbia.

The project, in Pancevo, will be the first of its kind in Serbia, and will also be the first of Gazprom Energoholding’s projects outside the Russian Federation, Gazprom said.


The power plant’s two-hectare construction site is located in an industrial district in the immediate vicinity of the Pancevo Refinery that belongs to NIS a.d. Novi Sad, part of the Gazprom Neft Group. The heat generated by the plant will serve the needs of the Pancevo Refinery, while its electric power output will be sold in Serbia and neighbouring countries.


The Pancevo plant is slated for commissioning in 2020. It will be built by Serbskaya Generaciya d.o.o. Novi Sad, a joint venture between Gazprom Energoholding Group and NIS a.d. Novi Sad. Shanghai Electric Group is the main turnkey contractor for the power plant.


20 Fossil Fuel Companies Generate One Third Of All Global Emissions

New data compiled by the United States-based Climate Accountability Institute and revealed by the Guardian confirms what many already know: at the core of the climate crisis is the fossil fuel industry. The crucial finding from the analysis is that 20 oil, gas and coal companies can be directly linked to over one third of all energy industry greenhouse gases in modern history. Despite knowing the destruction and dangers their activities pose to our planet and people, fossil fuel companies have been driving climate change and hold the key to avoiding impending disaster. What this points to is the urgent need for divestment, in spite of skepticism amongst some leaders.
