Background

The power station previously had two coal-fired generating units, which retired in 2009. The current gas-fired generating unit then started operation in 2010.

In 2020, Engie proposed expanding the gas plant by adding a 330 MW combined cycle unit.[1]

In April 2021, S&P Global reported that Electrabel had a permit for a 320 MW gas turbine plant.[2]
