Poland's Kulczyk Holdings has signed a deal with Belarusian energy company Bielenergo for the construction of a coal power plant, worth 1.5 billion euros, the Polish Radio External Service reported on Saturday.
Kulczyk Holding and Bielenergo will have equal shares in the plant.
"The construction will begin in late 2011 and finish in late 2015," Marta Wysocka, spokesperson for Kulczyk Holding told the Rzeczpospolita daily.
Energy from the Belarusian plant will also be sent to Poland via an energy bridge connecting the towns of Ros and Narew. The plant will use Polish coal from the Bogdanka colliery.
