October 23, 2013, Coventry, England – EON has confirmed that
it has halted its plans to construct the Portbury Dock biomass project.
The 150MW plant, planned for the Port of Bristol, had
already received planning permission from the government. The plant would have
created temporary work for upwards of 300 people during construction of the
plant, with another 35 staff hired for full-time operation of the plant.
The company stated that: “…under the current regulatory and
policy framework we concluded that this project was not a priority investment
This is the second
significant biomass power project to be cancelled in the U.K. this year.
Earlier in 2013, RWE npower announced that was halting work on the 750MW
Tilbury Power Station.
