Tragicomedy With Thermo Plant TEŠ 6 Investment Goes On

 

The boss of power utility HSE Blaž Košorok and Peter Dermol of the TEŠ coal-fired power plant told the press on Monday that they were looking for ways to secure the extra EUR 140m needed to finish the new generator at TEŠ, whose costs have now ballooned to EUR 1.44bn. Talks with the main supplier, Alstom, will start soon.

“We don’t have time to engage in a witch hunt for what happened in the past,” said Košorok of the state-owned HSE, which controls TEŠ, while adding that “nobody will escape accountability in case their guilt is proven”.

He stressed he was not speaking only of the previous management but “managements” and did not exclude a detailed audit of past operations, arguing that the project had possibly been seriously mismanaged.
