E.ON UK plc Ceases Operations at Coal-Fired Kingsnorth Power Plant
Dec 24 12
E.ON UK plc has ceased commercial generation at its 1,940-MW Kingsnorth coal-fired power plant. The closure was originally announced March 8. Decommissioning of Kingsnorth is set to be done in preparation for the plant's formal closure on March 31, 2013. The plant closure is the result of the European Union's Large Combustion Plant Directive legislation, which required it to close after generating for 20,000 hours after January 1, 2008, if the company did not opt to retrofit the plant with pollution controls. The power station was commissioned in 1970.
