RUGELEY POWER STATION MARKS END OF ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION

Rugeley Power Station Marks End of Electricity Production

Rugeley Power Station in Staffordshire has ceased market operations, switching off its remaining generation unit today (Wednesday 8th June).

The closure, which was announced in February 2016 following consultation with employees and unions, was due to the deterioration in market conditions for UK coal-fired power generation and is in line with ENGIE’s strategy to move towards a less carbon-intensive energy system.

ENGIE would like to once again thank everyone at Rugeley for their contribution to its business, for their loyal service to the Power Station and the important part they have all played in its safe, successful operation over the years.
