The Farge A plant was founded in 1922 and eventually became 150 MW. The old units were demolished from 1985-1990. The new Farge plant, also known as Farge 301, is a 350 MW unit that began operating in 1969. It was transferred to GDF SUEZ (now known as Engie) from E.ON in 2009.[1]

In April 2019, Engie signed an agreement with US-based Riverstone Holdings LLC, a private equity firm, for the sale of its shares in coal-fired power plants in the Netherlands and in Germany.[2]

A 2021 auction finalized terms to close over 2,100 MW of coal power, including the Farge plant operated by Onyx Kraftwerk Farge by October 2022.[3][4]
