The Trbovlje Power Station (Slovene: Termoelektrarna Trbovlje) is a lignite-fired power station on the bank of the Sava River near Trbovlje, Slovenia. The plant is operated by Termoelektrarna Trbovlje d.o.o.
The original power station was built in 1915. The new power station was built in 1964–1968 and it became operational in 1966. It consist of two units. The first unit is a 125 MW steam unit. The second unit is a 63 MW gas unit which includes two gas generators. It is used as a reserve unit for the Slovenia electric system.
The Trbovlje Chimney (Trboveljski dimnik) of the power station, built in 1976, is the tallest flue-gas stack in Europe. The 360-metre (1,180 ft) high flue-gas stack was poured in 210 days, and required 11,866 cubic metres (419,000 cu ft) of concrete and 1,079 tons of reinforcing steel. A high chimney was required for the site to ensure that emissions were removed from the deep, narrow valley under all weather conditions.
In November 2014 it was announced that the power station is to be sent into liquidation.
