France's biggest power company EDF announced Friday it inaugurated an 870-megawatt (MW) gas combined cycle (GCC) power station with Dutch leading power company DELTA in Netherlands.

The new station located at Vlissingen-Oost, in the southwest of the Netherlands, was owned by a company jointly controlled by EDF and Delta.

EDF said the new GCC power station had two 435 MW units, which can provide the equivalent of the electricity consumption of about 2 million homes.

In its 2009 annual report, the state-owned power company posted Thursday a positive net profit of 3.9 billion euros (5.35 billion U.S. dollars), 12 percent higher year-on-year.

Henri Proglio, Chief Executive Officer of EDF, vowed to improve the group's operation performance in 2010 after an exceptionally difficult 2009 in France.
