SSE (Keadby Generation Limited) is proposing to submit an application for a Development Consent Order to construct and operate a new build Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power station on land at the existing Ferrybridge ‘C’ Power Station Site.

The project, known as Ferrybridge D CCGT Project, will have a generating capacity of circa 2,000 megawatts and will be powered by natural gas taken from the National Transmission System.

It is anticipated that the application will be submitted to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in Q1 2019. Prior to the submission of the application, we will consult with the local community on the proposals.

Further details for the Project will be made available via this website once available.

New Gas Fired Power Station proposed at Ferrybridge

08 January 2018

SSE will begin consultation for a new gas fired power station at the Ferrybridge ‘C’ site over the coming weeks. Proposals for the new plant, which will be known as Ferrybridge ‘D’ CCGT and will have a generating capacity of up to 2,000MW, are being put forward as part of re-development at the site.

SSE, which owned and operated the coal fired Ferrybridge ‘C’ power station up until its closure in March 2016, is in the early stages of the development of this new Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power station. Pre-application consultation events are being planned for the local area giving members of the community the opportunity to view the proposals and provide feedback on the plans.

Jim Lawrie, Project Development Manager for SSE said: ‘The Ferrybridge ‘C’ coal station played a key part in delivering the energy needed to support supply for the UK for over 50 years. The development of a new power station at the site marks the next step in our commitment to invest in the area. We look forward to engaging with local stakeholders throughout our consultation for this new development.’

SSE, which also owns a 50 per cent share in the Ferrybridge Multifuel 1 and 2 projects located on land adjacent to the C station site, is currently finalising plans to commence demolition of the decommissioned C station with work expected to commence during 2018.

Public exhibitions for the proposed new development are due to be held in the local area over the coming weeks. During these sessions, local people will have the opportunity to find out more about the proposed project. As part of the consultation, members of the public will be able to talk with the development team and comment on the proposals, which will then feed into the final plans and designs. More information about these events will be publicised in due course.
