Welcome to Willington power station

The Willington project is a state-of-the-art CCGT/OCGT development with permitted capacity up to 2.4GW, which will be eligible to secure a 15-year Capacity Market contract.

The plant will be constructed at a strategically-located, grid-connected brownfield site in Derbyshire, Central England, the former site of the now-decommissioned Willington coal plant. Willington has all major construction permits in place, and is the only project in the UK permitted for both CCGT and OCGT capacity of this scale.

Since acquiring the site from RWE in 2016, Calon has continued to invest in Willington in order to develop the site.
