Background on existing plant

As of 2014 the power station consists of six units of 200 to 210 MW each, commissioned in 1962 to 1968. The plant's first eight units have been retired, and unit 12 is mothballed.[1]

In 2019, due to coal shortages from Russia, DTEK was down to two operating units.[2] At the end of their coal reserves DTEK switched to one unit running on natural gas.[3]
