The Kozienice Power Station is a coal-fired thermal power station in Świerże Górne near Kozienice, Poland. It is Poland's second largest power station with an installed capacity of 2,820 MW.[1]

The power station has one 300-metre (980 ft) high flue gas stack, which is one of Poland's tallest free standing structures, and two 200-metre (660 ft) high flue gas stacks. A further remarkable feature of it is that the powerlines running away from its switchyard are built as a roofstand on the top of the power station building. On 4 December 2013 four workers died in a fall, as a result of a platform failure within one of the chimneys.[2][3]
