Unit name Status Fuel(s) Capacity (MW) Technology CHP Start year Retired year
Unit GT operating[2] fossil gas - natural gas[2] 52[2] gas turbine[2] 1973[2]
Unit ST mothballed[2] fossil gas - natural gas[2] 450[2] steam turbine[2] 1973[2]

CHP is an abbreviation for Combined Heat and Power. It is a technology that produces electricity and thermal energy at high efficiencies. Coal units track this information in the Captive Use section when known.

In 1972, 450 MW of gas-fired electrical capacity was installed at the site. In 2012, Starkraft (which took over the power station from E.On in 2009) put the gas plant in cold reserve.[3]

However, an open-cycle gas-fired turbine of 52 MW still operates on this site.[4]
