Olten, Switzerland-based Atel has acquired the Moravske Teplarny thermal power plant in the CzechRepublic. Located near the town of Zlin, the plant produces and supplies electricity, process heat and district heating.



Atel will take over full ownership of the Moravske Teplarny thermal power plant in the south-eastern part of the CzechRepublic from an American energy group owned by Cinergy Corp.
