A broad portfolio of assets for a secure energy supply
Our generation fleet, which encompasses a range of energy sources like gas and coal, makes a tangible contribution to Britain’s supply security. We own and operate the power stations Connah's Quay, Cottam Development Centre, Enfield, Grain, Killingholme, Ratcliffe-on-Soar, and Taylor's Lane.
Through our trading activities we make our power production available to the market and provide balancing services to the UK system operator. We also buy and sell natural gas, which is brought to the United Kingdom via pipelines or LNG terminals. We own a stake in BBL, a 235-kilometer gas pipeline between Balgzand in the Netherlands and Bacton in the UK. We also own significant long-term regasification capacity at the Grain LNG terminal in Kent.
In addition, we own and operate a gas storage facility in Holford in Cheshire and two high-pressure gas pipelines, from Theddlethorpe to Killingholme and from Blyborough to Cottam, in Northeast England.
The Uniper Engineering Academy offers purpose-built facilities delivering bespoke training programmes - from gas turbine maintenance to smart meter installation - to match energy business needs anywhere in the world. 600 courses were delivered in 2016 to 4,000 delegates, and this year, the Academy won accreditation as an approved provider under the UK Government’s new apprenticeship levy programme.
