In 2012 it was reported that the Serbian Oil Company (NIS) and China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) have expressed interest in conducting coal exploration work in Kovin, including a new coal pit and new 700 MW capacity thermal power plant.[1]

The project is mentioned as potential in the new energy strategy of Serbia approved by the government in May 2015 and awaiting approval from the parliament (as of July 7, 2015).

In February 2016 Chinese companies China Huadian and Tianin Dredging said they were awaiting a decision from the Serbian Ministry of economy on their proposed MoU for a strategic partnership, which includes investment into underwater coal exploration and construction of the 700MW Kovin coal plant.[2] The companies reaffirmed their interest in the project in December 2017.[3]
