Scottish and Southern gets nod for 108-MW multi-fuel power project
Oct 31, 2011 - UK-based Scottish and Southern Energy (LON:SSE) said today its unit SSE Generation Ltd had secured consent from the Department of Energy and Climate Change to build a 108-MW multi-fuel power station in West Yorkshire in England.
The combined heat and power (CHP) plant will use various sustainable fuel sources such as waste wood, biomass and waste-derived fuels. Construction is to start in October 2012, while the power facility is to be completed at the beginning of 2015.
The multi-fuel power plant will be built at SSE's existing 1-GW Ferrybridge coal power complex, which is to close in 2015. SSE said the CHP project will not replace the existing coal capacity. It added that it had not yet decided what to do in the future with the Ferrybridge station.
