For extensive background see also Killingholme Power Station and North Killingholme IGCC Project. This gas unit proposal was originally approved in 2014.[1] C.GEN proposed to build on the former site of Block A of the Killingholme plant, now dismantled, which C.GEN purchased from Uniper.[2]

The gas unit project is listed in the T-4 Capacity Market 2024-2025 final auction results.[3][4] This would qualify it for government subsidies to guarantee electricity supply.[5]
