Background

Intergen is proposing to build Gateway near their existing Coryton power station. They shelved a 900-megawatt (MW) proposal for this site.[1] In 2021 the project applied for 299 MW of new generation in the T-4 Capacity Market 2024-2025 auction, but they were not listed in the final results.[2][3] This would qualify them for government subsidies to guarantee electricity supply.[4] It is unclear if financing depended on these subsidies.

Alongside the gas turbine, Intergen is proposing a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) with a rated electrical output of up to 1.3GWh (320MW).[5]
