Keadby 3

  • Category: Thermal

SSE Thermal is developing the option for a low-carbon combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) at our Keadby site in North Lincolnshire, which will be known as Keadby 3.

As part of our commitment to a net zero emissions future, Keadby 3 will only be built with a clear route to decarbonisation, either using hydrogen as a low-carbon fuel, or equipping it with post-combustion carbon capture technology. 

The proposed development comprises the construction, operation and maintenance of a ‘Low Carbon CCGT’ generating station with a capacity of up to 910MW electrical output.

The project is at the early stages of development and no final investment decision has been made.

In April 2020, SSE Thermal signed an agreement, alongside 10 other leading energy and industrial companies, to transform the Humber region into the world’s first ‘zero-carbon cluster’ by 2040. As part of this initiative, we want to create a clean power hub in Keadby to kick-start decarbonisation in the region and protect local jobs.
