Vojany (EVO)
Location: Kosice
Operator: Slovenske Elektrarne
Configuration: 12 X 110 MW
Fuel: semi-anthracite (EVO I), natural gas, oil (EVO II)
Operation: 1966-1974
Boiler supplier: Brno, Lurgi
T/G supplier: Skoda
EPC: Energoprojekt Prague, Škoda Pilsen, Chemkostav Humenné
Quick facts: EVO-I planning began in Nov 1959, the project was approved in Feb 1960, and construction began the following year. Design fuel was semi-anthracite coal imported from Ukraine by a purpose built wide-gauge rail line and the Zemplinska Sirava reservoir was built to supply cooling water. EVO-II (photo rear) was approved at the end of 1966 but the then Soviet Union was unable to supply sufficient coal for the new plant so the design fuel was switched to heavy oil. From 1979-1985, EVO-II was modified to fire natural gas as well. EVO-II was shut-in for economic reasons. The EVO-I stack is 300m high.
