The CCGT power project will be the single largest flexible generation asset to be commissioned in Britain since 2012, while the battery project will also be one of the largest built in the country.

Jan Springl, EPH Board Member, said: “We are happy that with the investment of more than £1 billion we can construct one of the most modern power plants in Europe and materially contribute to the security of energy supply in the UK.”

EPH acquired the Eggborough power station in 2015.
