Tilbury Power Station
In early 2010, we announced that we had begun investigating the option of a new, combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power station at our site in Tilbury, Essex. Alongside this, we also applied for and secured the consents needed to convert the existing Tilbury Power Station to run on 100% biomass until its closure under the Large Combustion Plant Directive (LCPD) by the end of 2015.
In early 2011, after carefully assessing the available options for the site, we made the decision to consider the possibility of re-permitting and re-consenting the existing Tilbury Power Station to enable it to continue to operate as a dedicated biomass plant beyond the LCPD limit.
As a result, the CCGT development project has been reprioritised and put on hold for the time being. For more information about the Tilbury biomass project, please visit the Tilbury Power Station page.
