The controversial development has had to be altered after it went through the planning process earlier this year and goes out to consultation this week.
One glaring change is that the original 150 foot high chimney stack would be extended to 200 feet, and space made available for a wind turbine construction site.
In the Ayrshire Power newsletter, it stated: "Following the feedback received in relation to Ayrshire Power's proposals, we have been working with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) to define the scope of, and then carry out, additional work necessary to provide further information on the impacts of the proposed power station on public health and the environment. This additional modelling work is now complete and the results will be published in an addendum to APL's original application for further public consultation on Wednesday 20 July."
The exhibition will take place on Exhibitions will take place on Tuesday 23 August, 12pm-7pm at Garrison House, in MIllport and Wednesday 24 August, 1pm-9pm, at Largs Yacht Haven.
