Unit name Status Fuel(s) Capacity Technology CHP Start year Retired year
Unit 1 operating[1][2] gas[1] 451.0 MW[1][2] combined cycle[1] - 2010[3][4] -
Unit 2 pre-construction[3][5] gas[5] 320.0 MW[5] gas turbine[3] - - -

CHP is an abbreviation for Combined Heat and Power. It is a technology that produces electricity and thermal energy at high efficiencies. Coal units track this information in the Captive Use section when known.

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.[6]

In April 2021, S&P Global reported that Electrabel had a permit for a 320 MW gas turbine plant.[7]
