By the time the plant shut down, two other plants, in Austria and Switzerland, were already at or near the point of closure.
The shutdown of Dennis had been delayed for months.
The reason for the shutdown, and the reasons for the decision to close Dennis, has been hotly debated.
There are many explanations.
The Dutch government has been blamed for the closure, with the Dutch media blaming the government for the failure to address the needs of the people in the area, the Dutch energy company, DTE, blamed the government of the Netherlands for the poor management of the power plants, and even the Dutch police blamed the Dutch authorities for not acting sooner.
In any event, Dennis Power is one of the largest coal power plants in Europe, operating at a capacity of 2.5 million tons of coal per day, producing about 70 percent of the electricity in the Netherlands.
The plants were built in the 1950s and 1960s and they have a combined capacity of 8.4 million tons.
The power plant at Dennis, which was built in 1958 and operates from a coal-fired steam generator, has a capacity to generate 1,200 megawatts of electricity.
The plant is operated by Dutch power company, E.ON.
The construction of the Dennis plant began in 1967, after the merger of two coal-burning power plants.
In 1974, the company that built the plants, RWE, merged with Dutch coal company, ENI, which in turn merged with ENI in 1981.
In 2006, after E.
On acquired the power generation rights from RWE and ENI for approximately 2.2 billion euros, the Netherlands was the first European country to have a coal power plant.
By the end of the decade, E,ON was the largest energy company in the world.
The decision to shut the power stations down came in the face of a growing energy crisis, and it has since been the subject of international and regional criticism.
A number of countries, including the United States, have said they would like to close the power projects because they do not have enough electricity to meet their demand, and in some cases they have also blamed the governments for the situation.
Some countries, such as France and Germany, have already taken the decision and some countries, notably France, have taken the view that the closure is an inevitable consequence of the situation, according to Rene Hildebrand, professor of international relations at the University of Amsterdam.
In fact, the shutdown of the two power plants was also a result of the failure of the government to take the necessary measures to address environmental pollution, Hildebrant said.
The situation in the United Kingdom has also raised concerns.
In September, the government announced that the Duke and Peabody coal power stations would close in 2018, after a period of three years, and that the United Power Plant in Essex would shut down in 2019.
The Duke and Pembrey coal power projects were built to generate about 2.1 billion euros per year.
The United Power Project in Kent will be shut down at the end the year.
According to the Dutch government, the closure of the coal plants has a lot to do with the fact that they were not built in a sustainable way.
In 2008, the European Commission said that there were environmental risks for the plants and that they should be phased out, but that the shutdowns were inevitable.
The government of Belgium, in particular, has also pointed out that the closures were unavoidable.
According a report by the European Environment Agency (EEA), the two coal plants at Dennis and E.on have an average lifespan of more than 80 years, but in a report in 2012, the EEA said that they are not long enough to generate any meaningful environmental benefits, and have also said that the environmental damage is enormous.
In addition to environmental damage, the closures of the Duke, Peabys and E-Pepes have caused environmental and economic damages, according the E.E.C. The EEA has said that their closures have caused more than 2.3 billion euros in damage to the environment.
In addition, the environmental impact of the shutdown has been estimated to be around 200 million euros.
The Dutch government is now looking for other options for managing the coal power crisis, according a statement from the Dutch Ministry of Environment.
In response to the decision by the Dutch Government to shut Dennis and the E-Peabys, the Danish Energy Company, E-Power, has asked the Dutch Minister of the Environment to take immediate steps to find alternative coal power generation facilities and to explore the possibility of constructing new coal plants.
