UK government approves ESB's £750m power station project in Yorkshire

The Department for Energy & Climate Change has approved Ireland’s Electricity Supply Board (ESB) to build a £750m power project in Knottingley, Yorkshire.
The state-owned electricity company in Ireland will develop a 1,500MW combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power station at the site of the former Oxiris Chemical works in Knottingley.
The project will be developed by Knottingley Power, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Electricity Supply Board (ESB), and will create approximately 1,000 construction jobs.
The ESB project comprises the 3rd CCGT power station examined by the Planning Inspectorate to gain development consent.
Planning Inspectorate chief executive Simon Ridley said: "This is the 36th application for a nationally significant infrastructure project to be examined by The Planning Inspectorate. The examination, recommendation and decision have been within the statutory timescales laid down in the Planning Act 2008."
