In 2009 it was reported that Poland-based KGHM Cuprum and Poland electric utility PGE plan to incorporate a firm to construct a brown coal-fired power facility in the south-western city of Legnica. The company, along with a liquid fuels and hydrogen production plant, also plans new brown coal mine and a 4500 MW power facility. Deputy president for extraction at PGE Andrzej Jeznach said it would take around 15-20 years for completing the investment.[1] Legnica has estimated brown coal reserves of 3,000 megatonnes.[2]

Since there has been no news on further development of the project since its 2009 announcement, and it appears to have been abandoned.
