Vaun Campbell, Managing Director at Lynemouth Power Limited said,” This is fantastic news for the Lynemouth project and the stations 134 strong workforce. As a full coal-to-biomass conversion, this project is a win-win for all involved. The North East region and the local economy also benefits as supply chains and other infrastructure are created.
Once operational the project generates 420MW, with 390MW export of low carbon electricity to the national grid, supporting the Government’s climate change targets.
It has been a long journey with delays to the decision impacting the project but we can finally now move towards hopefully making an investment decision.”
