[holding answer 9 March 2009]: I am advised by E.ON UK that, during July and August 2008, Kingsnorth power station, excluding its auxiliary gas turbines, was generating power for slightly less than half of that time and was generating no power for the remainder of the period. At no time during the period were all the station’s units operating at full load.
The output of each unit can vary significantly from day to day. More detailed information is available on the operating regime of each unit and the company would be happy to supply this if the hon. Member wishes to write to E.ON UK.
