Background

Unit 14 was commissioned in 1972 and had a capacity of 150 MW. Unit 15 was commissioned in 1989 and has a capacity of 119 MW. According to the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E), Unit 15 previously used gas, then switched to coal in Jan 2017.[1] As of January 2021, Unit 14 last operated as gas-fired, and unit 15 is coal-fired.[2]

In 2016 unit 14 was fully retired.[3]

The final coal-fired unit was slated to be retired by 2023. However, the plant's life has been extended until at least 2024 due to energy security concerns in light of the war in Ukraine.[4]
