Killingholme Power Station
Killingholme Power Station is the name given to two CCGT natural gas power stations near to East Halton and North Killingholme in North Lincolnshire; Killigholme B (900 MW) opened in 1993 and is owned by E.ON UK and Killingholme A (625 MW) opened in 1994 and is owned by Centrica.


900 MW plant
The E.ON UK plant consists of two 450 MW Siemens V94.2 gas turbine modules each connected to a heat recovery steam generator using only a single steam turbine in a 2 into 1 configuration. Gas is supplied from a 26 mile pipeline from Theddlethorpe. When it was built by Powergen (now called E.ON UK) and opened in April 1993 it was only the second gas-fired power station built in the UK. It was taken out of service in 2002 due to the lower price of electricity and was then restored to full service in August 2005, with one of the 450 MW units returning to service in April 2005. E.ON UK have an Education Centre at their site for school children.

652 MW plant
It uses three Alstom GT-13D 150 MW gas turbines each with a heat recovery steam generator which lead to one Alstom 230 MW steam turbine. Owned by Centrica and employs 52 people. The plant opened in 1994 and was operated by National Power until 2000 when it was bought by NRG Energy for £390 million. It was then purchased in 2003 by a consortium of twenty banks when NRG got into financial difficulty and was then bought by Centrica in July 2004 for £142 million.
