SSE Eyes New Large Gas Plant at its UK Ferrybridge Site
British utility SSE (SSEZY) could build a new 2,000 megawatt (MW) gas-fired power plant at its Ferrybridge site in northern England, it said on Wednesday.
SSE expects to submit a planning application for the plant to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in Q1 2019 it said.
A 2,000 MW plant could produce enough electricity to power around 2 million homes
SSE closed its coal-fired power station in Ferrybridge in 2016.
