Consulting company McKinsey, which is assisting Greek Public Power Corporation (PPC) with the preparation of its bailout-required sale list of ligite-fired facilities, expected to represent 40 percent of PPC’s capacity, is focusing on at least five alternative plans which includes Megalopoli (511 MW), Meliti I (450 MW), license for Meliti II (450 MW), and, under certain conditions, Amynteo (600 MW).
Ptolemaida V, which is currently under construction, as well as PPC’s five power stations at Agios Dimitrios, which the utility wants to avoid selling at all costs, have not been included in the scenarios worked on by the consulting firm.

These facilities were initially considered for inclusion on the sale list but was eventually dropped.
