Tauron reported an “emergency overhaul” of the new unit on August 6. At the beginning, he mentioned the need to repair the slag remover. He postponed the start date of the block four times. According to the last notification, the block is to start from Saturday to Sunday night. Will this happen? Our sources close to the contractor warn that this date may be postponed once again. – The block can stand for much longer, even until October Our sources say.
In turn, unofficial sources in Tauron show that the unit will be shut down by the end of August.
Business Insider Polska was the first to write about the problems with the operation of the newest unit at Elektrownia Jaworzno. We revealed that the main contractor of the block – Rafako – reports problems with the availability of coal from Tauron mines, and above all with the quality of the fuel. The internal correspondence of the Rafako group, which was received by Business Insider, shows that the installation fires poor quality coal, which has recently led to “a series of unplanned shutdowns and their breakdowns”. Tauron denied this information.
