Kilroot power station is a coal and oil power station on the east coast of Northern Ireland, UK, commissioned in 1981. The station has installed capacity 514 MW in dual-fired boilers (coal and heavy fuel oil), along with 142 MW in four Open Cycle Gas Turbines (OCGT) and 10 MW of battery energy storage from the Kilroot Advancion Energy Storage Array, which is the only grid scale operational battery storage unit in Ireland with a potential to install a further 30–100 MW of battery storage. Together with EP Ballylumford, it secures over 60 % of Northern Ireland‘s electricity demand.

This natural-gas-fired power station is the largest power station in Northern Ireland consisting of two Combined Cycle Gas Turbines (CCGT) and two Open Cycle Gas Turbines (OCGT), which was built on a brown field site and began full commercial operation in 2003. Highly flexible CCGTs are able to operate in several different modes (open cycle, CCGT) and have the lowest minimum generation for CCGT in the Irish market. Such attributes are ideal for a system with high levels of wind where flexibility and fast response is required. The OCGTs provide required fast response units, as well as much needed capacity. The combination of fast, flexible and diverse thermal assets, jointly with battery storage potential, makes the Ballylumford portfolio attractive and ideally suited to the future market in Ireland. The potential to install storage at scale (30-100 MW) further enhances and diversifies the portfolio. Significant investment has been made in recent years, further enhancing Ballylumford’s competitive position within the Irish market. The power plant´s capacity is 688 MW and together with EP Kilroot, it secures over 60 % of the region‘s electricity supply from diverse mix of assets.

Tynagh is a 384 MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) in east County Galway, the Republic of Ireland. The power station is the only independent CCGT plant in the Irish market and provides a flexible daily electricity product to the Irish wholesale electricity market since 2006. It is a major player in securing electricity supply to Galway and the west of Ireland with 9% of the country’s electricity requirements supplied directly to the national grid. The CCGT plant was developed on the former disused Tynagh Mines site, being a major contributor to the local economy while minimising the environmental impact.
Kraftwerk Mehrum GmbH (KWM) operates a coal-fired power plant with a net installed capacity of 690 MW. Mehrum is located between the cities of Hannover and Braunschweig directly on the Mittelland Canal.
The electrical output is enough to supply 700,000 households or about 1 million people with electrical energy, which corresponds to a supply area of the Hannover region. The operating range of the power plant is between 150 MW and 690 MW of net capacity. Due to the very flexible design, the system can adapt the power production to the individual needs of the power grid and meet the increasingly fluctuating load requirements due to the renewable energies. The system is characterized by relatively high availability rates and high reliability for the shareholders and for the load dispatcher.
In 1979, the coal-fired power station with a net output of initially 654 MW was put into operation. In 2003, extensive efficiency-enhancing measures were implemented (retrofit measure at the turbine, heat recovery in the flue gas system, optimization of cooling tower installations), which led to an increase in net output of 36 MW to 690 MW today and an increase in efficiency to around 40 %. Thanks to these measures, around 80,000 tons of hard coal and around 180,000 tons of CO2 are saved each year in the environmental balance with comparable output. Currently, around 120 employees ensure safe operation of the power plant.

is located at Schkopau/Germany and operates the Schkopau Power Plant with a net installed capacity of 900 MW.
The Schkopau Plant burns lignite from the central German field and supplies electricity to the 380 kV grid and to the 110 kV grid of Deutsche Bahn and also supplies power and steam to the chemical factories of Buna Sow Leuna Olefinverbund GmbH (BSL). The two blocks comprising the co-generation plant can be deployed independently to maintain supply.
The Schkopau power plant is not only a link in East Germanys power supply but also an important economic factor for the entire industrial region by supplying reliable energy to the chemical industry, the railway and the public grid.
Gazel Energie is energy producer in France with a portfolio of coal and biomass fueled power plants and wind and solar farms with a total production capacity of 837 MW.
