Proposed power station will be gas-fired, not coal-fired

The station was the site of a 1,600 MW supercritical project proposed by E.ON UK with a notional commissioning date of 2012.[2] In 2009 Power Engineering reported that the company had decided to develop a 1,600 MW combined-cycle gas plant to replace the High Marnham coal plant.[3]
