Government gives green light to 1,520MW combined cycle gas turbine plant in Greater Manchester

01 April 2010

The green light was given by the Government today for a 1,520 Megawatt Combined Cycle Gas Turbine  (CCGT) power plant in Carrington, Greater Manchester. The Carrington power plant, owned by Wainstones Energy Limited, will have a construction period of about 30 months with full operation scheduled for 2013. It is the first to be consented in line with new carbon capture readiness requirements and the company has prepared a plan explaining how they would retro-fit carbon capture and storage equipment to the plant in the future.

The consent accompanied publication of a number of papers setting out the Government’s strategy for ensuring secure UK gas supplies to 2020 and beyond. The Gas Security of Supply policy statement is available here
