The notional commissioning date is 2011 or 2012. It is a part of a 3,500 megawatt generation plan by the company which will cost 3.5 billion euros. The project was approved in December 2007 and is proposed to be run on up to 80% biomass.[3] Electrabel began construction of the plant in 2009, scheduled for completion in 2013.[4]
