E.ON’s New U.K. Power Station Is ‘Delayed by a Few Weeks’

March 30 (Bloomberg) -- E.ON AG, Germany’s biggest utility, will delay the opening of its new natural-gas-fired power station at the Isle of Grain, southeast England.

The 1,275-megawatt plant’s three units have been testing since last October. The station was due to start selling power commercially by the end of this month and is “delayed by a few weeks,” Jonathan Smith, an E.ON spokesman based in Coventry, England, said by phone today.

The waste heat from the power plant will eventually be piped for use at National Grid Plc’s nearby liquefied natural gas terminal. The system to send waste heat to the LNG site will happen “very much later this year,” Smith said.

Power stations produce electricity for the grid while testing. The plant was idle as of 4:30 p.m. today in London.
