UK's Langage power plant open early 2009 -Centrica

LONDON, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Centrica’s (CNA.L) Langage power plant in England will start commercial operations in early 2009, a spokesman for the company said on Tuesday.

When it bought the Langage project from Carlton Power in 2004, the seller had permission to build a third generation unit at the site in southwest England. But Britain’s biggest domestic energy supplier is only building two gas-fired units because it doesn’t have room for more.

“Basically, its down to land constraints... We’ve got the land to build a two gas turbine power station but we don’t have the land to build that addtional unit,” he said. “That’s not to say that we couldn’t do it at some point in the future.”

The two generation units at Langage will produce up to 885-megawatts of electricty. (Reporting by Daniel Fineren, editing by Anthony Barker)
