The plant’s six units were brought online between 1957 and 1962.[1][2] The plant primarily uses natural gas as fuel, with coal used as a backup. At one point the power station had up to 295 MW of installed capacity, but as of June 2021, the T+ Group website lists only 195 MW of installed capacity.[3]
