Gujarat-based Adani Power Ltd (APL) has been short listed along with three other international bidders to build a 1,000 MW coal-fired power plant in Republic of Kosovo.

"We are one of the four bidders short listed for the 1,000 MW power plant in Kosovo," a top executive of APL told PTI in Ahmedabad.

The government of Kosovo has asked the short listed bidders to submit detailed project proposals. Tenders will be published in April this year and final bidder will be selected in July, he said.

The plant will be based near Pristina, the capital city of the young nation having population of two million people.

Kosovo, which suffers from chronic electricity shortages, holds Europe's third largest reserves of lignite , estimated at more than 10 billion tonnes.

APL has been active on various power projects in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh with more than 11000 MW of total capacity, which are at different stages of planning and implementation.
