The technology for the production of electrical energy is precisely defined, and is determined by the base source of energy. The use of the technology is regulated by a technological process which prescribes the phases of energy conversion, technical devices, and determines the energy conversion efficiency. The reliability of operation depends on the technical characteristics and quality of the installations and the machinery.

Because of the wise decisions of the engineers at the time of construction, the Šoštanj thermal plant has equipment produced by excellent manufacturers from Germany and Switzerland. It is because of this the operation of T.E. Šoštanj is comparable to similar European plants in terms of production results, and we even surpass them in terms of operational responsiveness. The results are a sign of the outstanding maintenance and management of the production facilities. Today T.E. Šoštanj is the largest fossil fuel power plant in Slovenia, and it contributes 33% of the country’s electrical energy production.
