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.[1] 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 EDF Group, A2A, Alpiq, and IRIDE Group.[2]

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.[3]
