The Thurrock flexible generation plant will be located on land to the north of Tilbury substation. It will comprise gas fired reciprocating engines with a combined capacity of up to 600MW. The project will be delivered in two phases, the first phase of development being 270MW.
The site will turn on, reaching its full output capacity in less than 10 minutes, and provide a sustained delivery of electricity to the grid according to system needs, whether that be due to a shortage in network connected generation or an increase in overall UK demand.
