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.
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.
