Quick facts: On 1 Apr 1940, employees turned up for work for the first time at Sealand's large, new power station near Isefjord. At the time, Kyndby PS had two 30-MW steam sets and was built with considerable difficulty at a then-remote locale requiring extensive landfilling and near-shore land reclamation. In Jun 1976, with the completion of Unit-22, this became Denmark's largest power station. In 2010, Dong Energy decided to upgrade Kyndby and it is under contrat as a baackup power station through 2021.
