Keadby Power Station to re-open

On Tuesday 20th October 2015 SSE confirmed the re-opening of Keadby power station following announcements earlier this year of its intent for the plant to return to service.

Details of the announcement can be found here.

Keadby 2 proposal

Planning permission for a second 710MW CCGT plant at Keadby, known as Keadby 2 was granted in 1993. We are in the process of refining the planning consent to ensure that the new facility can make use of the most effective technology. We do not expect to make an investment decision to construct this project until 2016 at the earliest.

Keadby wind farm

SSE Renewables, the renewable energy development division of SSE, acquired the Keadby wind farm project, located close by to the Keadby 1 power station, in May 2011. The project had previously been developed by the RES Group and received planning consent in 2008.

Keadby Wind Farm became fully operational in summer 2014. It has 34 turbines, making it England’s largest onshore wind farm.
