Preliminary Design 
Main Design

TPP Nikola Tesla is a power plant complex, located on the right bank of the river Sava, approximately 40 km
upstream from Downtown Belgrade. By far the largest one in Serbia, the complex generates around 17.263
GWh annually. These power plants use lignite mined from the RB Kolubara as fuel. Coal is transported from
the mines via a normal-gauge railroad about 30 km long capable of supplying a total of 37 million tons of coal
a year.

Power plant complex is located on local industrial railway track, that connects open-mines with power
plants itself. This railway line is one of the busiest railway lines in Serbia. The client requested a design for
the reconstruction of the Tamnava railway station and the Tamnava passing point. The scope of the works
designed, included:

-reconstruction of tracks within the station and passing point, as well as establishing of new track
connections, between all existing and reconstructed tracks,

-new safety signaling system on all station tracks, switches and turnout tracks,

-reconstruction of the overhead lines at Tamnava Station and Tamnava passing point to
accommodate the newly reconstructed track
