Scottish and Southern Energy Announces Marchwood Power Fully Operational

Scottish & Southern Energy The new 840MW combined cycle gas turbine power station at Marchwood, near Southampton, in which SSE has a 50% ownership interest, is now available for full commercial operation. This is the UK's first large-scale new CCGT power station to enter commercial operation for five years.

The completion takes the capacity of SSE's electricity generation portfolio, including its share of joint ventures, to just over 11,500MW. Marchwood is expected to achieve a thermal efficiency in excess of 58% and all of the station's output is contracted to SSE.
