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.
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.
