RWE aims to restart British gas-fired power plant by late Oct

Posted by August 22, 2014

RWE plans to restart its 400-megawatt (MW) gas-fired Great Yarmouth Power Station on England's east coast by late October, the company said in a statement on Friday.

The plant, 220 km (136 miles) northeast of London, has been offline since early March due to a fault which caused damage to one of its turbines.

"We are working hard at a return of the plant to commercial operation on time and on budget for the autumn clock change," said Kerry Nesbitt, distributed assets group manager at RWE Generation UK.

Britain's autumn clock change, when daylight saving time ends, will take place on October 26.
