In October 2016 Amec Foster Wheeler was awarded a contract to erect a new CFB boiler in the Deven plant to replace boiler 9 in unit 2, which was running on natural gas. Replacement construction is underway, and the unit is planned for operation in 2017.
In May 2017 a new permit was issued stating the new boiler was completed.
