Willington Parish Council are part of the Local Liaison Committee for the proposed new gas fired Power Station at Willington and have recently received the following email from Calon Energy regarding the power station:
The Calon Energy team and its investors, in conjunction with our technology partner, submitted a very competitive bid into the capacity auction. However, the price that the auction settled on this year was insufficient to make our project economically viable at this point in time. Indeed, no other large scale gas-fired power station was successful either. More »
We still have a firm belief that power plants such as the one proposed for Willington are a key element for the UK's provision of low carbon, efficient and low cost electricity supplies. We will continue to progress this issue with government and other stakeholders and we will be comprehensively reviewing our strategy with respect to future power generation options to develop the Willington site.
Your support for the project has been much appreciated and I hope that we can continue to work together to develop the site depending on what happens in the weeks and months ahead.
As we discussed, our failure to win at this auction doesn't stop us entering the site in a future auction, but as it stands at this moment we cannot progress the project much beyond current plans at this stage.
It would be good to meet again when the dust settles as any assistance you could provide in our preparation for future auctions would be much appreciated. We will keep you informed as events unfold and I look forward to catching up again before too long.
The auctions are annual so the next one will be December 2017. As of yet we have no news about the Cooling Towers. » Less
