Centrica to mothball UK gas plant from April 1st - #Centrica

British utility Centrica will mothball its 340-megawatt (MW) Kings Lynn gas-fired power plant from April 1, but it will continue operating its Barry gas plant to produce peakload electricity, a spokesman said on Monday.

The utility said in its 2011 results statement last month that it would consult on whether to shut down the two gas plants as the cost of burning gas for power was too high at such low-efficiency plants.
