SSE received planning consent to build a second 710MW CCGT at the Keadby site in 1996. A S36C application to vary this consent was granted in November 2016.
The project, known as Keadby 2, is not expected to receive an investment decision until 2017 at the earliest.
Keadby 2 proposal
Variation to existing planning consent
SSE has been granted a variation to the existing planning consent under S36C of the Electricity Act 1989.
As part of the application process an updated Environmental Statement and various associated documents have been produced. A copy of these documents including the Environmental Statement Non Technical Summary (NTS) can be found below.
Keadby Power Station
Our existing gas-fired power station known as Keadby 1 in North Lincolnshire, England has been operating in the local area since 1996. It has a generation capacity of 735MW.
Keadby wind farm
SSE Renewables, the renewable energy development division of SSE, acquired the Keadby wind farm project in north Lincolnshire in May 2011. The project had previously been developed by the RES Group and the 34 turbine project received planning consent in 2008. Plans for the wind farm remained unchanged and we have been consulting with the local community and stakeholders to ensure they are kept informed on the project as it progresses.
For more information please visit the project's dedicated page.
Keadby 2 proposal
The proposals for Keadby 2 were given planning permission in 1993.
SSE is currently in the process of refining the planning consent it already has to build a second 710MW CCGT plant at its Keadby site. The decision to mothball the existing plant will not affect this and SSE will continue to progress with the development phase of what is known as ‘Keadby 2’. It does not, however, expect to make an investment decision to construct this project until 2016 at the earliest.
On Friday 19 and Saturday 20 September 2014, SSE held public information sessions to update local communities on plans to progress the consented Keadby 2 Power Station.
Exhibition boards from the event are available to download here.
