Thorpe Marsh was originally home to a 1000 MW coal plant, which was decommissioned in 1994.[2]

The plan to build a gas-fired power plant at this location was originally proposed in 2010. In 2016, the company revised its proposal from two combined cycle and one open cycle natural gas fired turbines generating 1500 MW to two combined cycle turbines generating 1575 MW.[1] However, the plans appear to have stalled around that time, and the project appears to be cancelled.

As of April 2021 there is no new progress and the plant is presumed cancelled.
