TPP “Nikola Tesla A”, Obrenovac


The biggest Thermal Power Plant in Serbia, consisting of six unit's with total installed power of 1,650 megawatts.

Built on the right bank of the Sava River, near Obrenovac, it is the biggest individual producer of electric power in Serbian electric power system. At the average, more than 8 billion kilowatt hours are produced per year.

Its first 210 megawatt unit was commissioned on March 7, 1970 (the date that is today celebrated as the Day of CE TENT). Six months later it was joined by unit A2, with the same power. At the time, these were the most cost saving unit's. The construction continued five years later, and by the end of 1979, the electric power industry of Serbia was empowered by additional 308.5 megawatt unit's, and TENT A reached the power of the biggest electric power facility in the country. The installed equipment was state of the art at the time. Highly qualified personnel came here to work from other power plants, but they were simultaneously undergoing intensive training, creating a large number of young experts. In this way, this Thermal Power Plant is today also an important nursery of human resources in the field of thermal energy.
