The Ashkelon-Delek Power Station located in Ashkelon was established to supply power to the Ashkelon desalination plant. The power plant has been operating since January 2008. In 2018 Delek Israel bought the 87MW gas-fired power plant.[3] In 2019, the Israeli government announced its target to phase out coal-fired power generation by the end of 2025, five years earlier than originally targeted. To achieve this, the government plans to convert the Ashkelon coal-fired plant to natural gas by 2024 and the other two coal-fired electricity generation units at Hadera’s Orot Rabin plant to gas by the end of 2025.[5]
