The Rijeka Thermal Power Station (Croatian: Termoelektrana Rijeka, TE Rijeka, also known as TE Urinj) is an oil-fired power station east of Rijeka at Kostrena, Croatia. It was built between 1974 and 1978 and it has one generation unit with capacity of 320 MW. The height of the boiler house including its rooftop flue gas stack is 250 metres (820 ft).
The power station is owned and operated by Hrvatska elektroprivreda. Its annual production varies, averaging 917 GWh, but only 141 GWh in 2011. It is expected to undergo decommissioning in 2020, but it is doubtful that it will remain operational until then because of its pollution problem. As of 2015[update], Rijeka Thermal Power Station is offline, ready to resume generation within 160 hours of notice.
