logos-TK-news-cgen-v1C.GEN Killingholme Ltd is pleased to announce that it has been granted a Development Consent Order by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change for the North Killingholme Power Project in North Lincolnshire, UK.

C.GEN Killingholme’s Chief Executive Officer, Wim Heyselberghs, said: “We welcome the decision of the Secretary of State. This plant will bring a lot of added value to the electricity supply in the UK, to the diversification of the energy mix and to further limitations of CO2 emissions.”

The North Killingholme Power Project constitutes a new 470 megawatt electrical thermal generating station and is intended to operate either as a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) plant or as an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) plant.

The Plant, which is located on land adjacent to C.RO Ports Killingholme Ltd at North Killingholme, will supply enough electricity for up to one million homes.

During the construction phase of the Project, up to 1,600 people will be active on site. Operation of the Project will see the creation of up to 140 jobs and generate substantialemployment for supporting services from the local area.

C.GEN’s Power Project has the potential to help reduce the UK’s carbon emissions bydisplacing electricity generated by older and less environmentally friendly power stations.When operating as an IGCC power plant with CO2 capture, up to 88 per cent ofCO2 can be captured.
