Moni Power Station is the second power plant the Electricity Authority of Cyprus built. It is located some 20 kilometres (12 mi) east of Limassol. Construction started in the 1960s and when completed it consisted of six steam turbogenerators each having a capacity of 30MW. Heavy fuel oil is fired in all boilers.

In the late 1980s, four gas turbines using distillate fuel oil no. 2 (usually called "diesel" or "gasoil") were added and rated at 37.5 MW each.

One of the steam turbines has been decommissioned in early 2011, with the other five now rated at 27 MW. Also, the gas turbines are now rated at 35 MW and this is reduced to 30 MW in Summer. So, the total capacity of the plant is approximately 260MW.

Following the 11 July 2011 Evangelos Florakis Naval Base explosion, approximately 35 MW of rented mobile generators are now installed at this station.
