Green energy power station planning application
Edgeley Green Power has submitted a £12m planning application to Adur District Council for the construction of a 32 MW eco-power station at the Fishersgate Terminal at Shoreham Port next to the existing gas-powered facility. It will burn a range of bio-fuels.
The station, which will burn vegetable, plant or animal oils, bio-mass, animal tallow and even old cooking oil, could be operating by 2014 and will receive most of its fuel directly into the harbour transported by sea. The main fuel will be tall oil, produced during the wood pulping of mainly fast growing coniferous trees in Scandinavia and Canada.
The development ties in with the Port’s other green energy projects including photovoltaics on warehouse roofing and wind turbines.
