VPI Immingham proposes to build new gas-fired power station
VPI Immingham is proposing to build a new open cycle gas turbine power station at its site in Immingham, N Lincs. The new power station would have a generating capacity of up to 299 megawatts of electricity, and would use natural gas supplied through the existing gas connection at the VPI Immingham CHP Plant. It would be located on land adjacent to the existing power plant.
Stage 1 Consultation will commence in July, with Stage 2 following in the autumn.
Dave Brignall, Manager of VPI Immingham said: “In line with government policy. the new power station is planned in response to the urgent need for new electricity generating capacity in the UK. It will make use of land within an industrial location which is close to existing gas and electricity connections, and will benefit the local economy, through supply chain and skilled employment opportunities.”
Public exhibitions for the project are due to be held at the County Hotel in Immingham on 19 July and South Killingholme Village Hall on 21 July 2018. As part of the consultation, members of the public will be able to talk with the project team and comment on the proposals, which will then feed into the plans and designs.
