KPMG Statement

Administrators appointed to Calon Energy Limited

Wednesday 24th June 2020

Jim Tucker and David Pike from KPMG’s Restructuring practice were appointed Joint Administrators of Calon Energy Limited (“CEL”) today, 24 June 2020.

CEL is the holding company of the Calon Energy Group (“CEG”), a leading Independent Power Producer (IPP) in the UK, with a 2.3 GW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) portfolio operating across three sites.

The operating companies below CEG, which own and operate the Severn, Sutton Bridge and Baglan Bay power stations, are not in any insolvency process and continue to trade under the control of their respective directors and management teams. All CEG employees remain employed and will continue to be paid as normal.

Jim Tucker, restructuring partner at KPMG and joint administrator, said: “Although we have been appointed administrators over the Topco to the group, the group’s power stations continue to operate as normal, outside any insolvency process, under the control of their directors. We will be working with the directors and senior management in the coming months to develop a new business plan for the power stations, before finalising the timeline to commence a sales process.”
