Background

The power station is owned by Enecogen, a partnership between utilities Eneco Energie and Dong Energy, each with a 50% stake. Construction of the plant started in May 2009 and began commercial operation in late 2011.[1]

C.Gen originally planned for the power station to be fueled by coal.[citation needed]

In 2017 DONG Energy changed its name to Ørsted and began divesting its fossil fuel assets.[2] In 2018 Castleton Commodities International (CCI) bought Orsted's 50% stake in the project.[3]
