New multi-million power station plans to be exhibited by EDF Energy

8th September 2017

EDF Energy is to hold consultation events over proposals for a power plant to go alongside the two existing gas and coal stations in West Burton.

The plans for the multi-million plant, West Burton C, were announced in June - and now the energy giant say it is considering a fourth smaller plant on land next to the existing power station.

If the project gets the green light after the consultation, the venture could create up to 150 construction jobs during the build and 15 roles once the plant is operational.

Local people and stakeholders will be able to see plans and have their say at a series of public exhibitions next week.

EDF say it is also "considering developing" proposals for a further gas peaking plant, West Burton D, which would be capable of generating up to 50MW of electricity.
