Tuzla Thermal Power Plant is a coal-fired thermal power plant in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is the largest power plant in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is operated by Elektroprivreda Bosne i Hercegovine (EBiH).


Construction of the first two units started in 1959. The first 32 MW unit was commissioned in 1963 and the last 215 MW unit was commissioned in 1978.[1][2]

There is a plan to build a new 450 MW unit by Alpiq.[2][3]



The power station has an installed electric capacity of 715 MW (without two 32 MW units) and it produces around 3.1 TWh of electricity per year.[1][2] In addition, it supplies heat for Tuzla and Lukavac. The plant burns 330,000  tons of coal annually.[1]

Units 1-6 are supplied from the Kreka and Banovići mines, and unit 7 is supplied from the Đurđevik and Banovići mines.[1]

Unit 4 has a 100-metre (330 ft) flue gas stack, Unit 6 a 165-metre (541 ft) flue gas stack.[4]
