Each of the generating units can be operated independently and at varying capacity allowing each unit to be operated in a manner that maximises profitability.

"I am delighted with the outcome of the process which has delivered our refinancing and listing. Drax is a major participant in the UK power market and I am pleased that a broad range of investors will now be able to participate in our success. All the staff at Drax have worked hard and shown tremendous commitment in getting to this point; together we look forward to the future with confidence and optimism."
