Drax expects £10m earnings hit following unplanned outage
Source - SMW
Following an unplanned outage on the rail unloading facilities at Drax Power Station, biomass deliveries are currently restricted and, in order to optimise available supplies, generation on the two ROC units were reduced.
These two units will then be taken offline for a short period. The CfD unit and coal operations remain unaffected.
The outage on the rail unloading facilities is currently expected to be completed during January 2018, at which point the ROC units should return to service.
Reflecting the outage and reduced generation on the ROC units, Drax currently expects a reduction in EBITDA of £10m in 2017.
