Background

The power station had eight units, only three of which were operating by 2009: unit 3 (coal), unit 7 (coal), and unit 8 (biomass). Unit 3 has a power of 235 MW, unit 7 of 362 MW, and unit 8 of 35 MW.[1]

Coal-fired unit 3 of 235 MW was retired in 2010.[2]

The remaining coal and biomass units, along with a waste incineration plant, was acquired by Fjernvarme Fyn from Vattenfall in 2015 for US$180 million.[3]

The last coal unit at the power station, unit 7 of 362 MW, is planned for retirement in 2022.[4]
