Scottish & Southern Energy's 870MW gas-fired power plant wins approval

Wales is set to gain a new power plant with the potential to provide electricity to 1.4 million homes, as Energy Minister Charles Hendry gave the go-ahead for Scottish & Southern Energy (SSE) to build an 870-megawatt gas-fired power station near Port Talbot.

The Abernedd Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Plant will be built at the Baglan Bay Energy Park, on the former site of a chemicals facility.

Charles Hendry said:

“This new power station will bring jobs and industry back to this disused site and will provide a boost to the nation’s energy security.
