Background on Plant
Brindisi Nord power station was a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,280 MW. The four units were completed between 1969 and 1979. Units 1-2 were retired in 2008. Units 3-4 are on standby while the plant seeks a new permit to co-fire coal and municipal waste at unit 3. The plant is owned by Eni SpA.
Currently, there are 3 gas-fired combined cycle turbines operating at the station, generating a total of 1179 MW of electricity in a combined heat-and-power system.
A2A announced in 2020 they are now exploring converting the two idle units to "eight endothermic gas powered generators" with a capacity of 300 MW.
