Once the boiler is up to full capacity the process of maintenance works on Boiler number seven will get underway.
Enemalta said that maintenance on boiler number seven is expected to take between two and three months, after which it will be kept on standby for the peak demand of the summer period.
The Government said that it “remains committed to decommissioning the Marsa power station as well as the old Delimara power station, known as Phase 1, according to European requirements.”
To date, as part of this process, boilers three, four, five and six have already been decommissioned, the statement said.
