C.GEN obtained development consent to build a 470MW power station on the south bank of the Humber Estuary, near North Killingholme, North Lincolnshire, in October 2014. The development consent order for the project allows the construction of a highly flexible Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT), using natural gas as fuel. The project is also enabled to operate using syngas produced from coal by an integrated gasifier, with pre-combustion capture of carbon emissions.
C.GEN’s project is build-ready. The project has secured development consent alongside a high-pressure gas connection and the necessary capacity transmission contracts to deliver energy into the national grid.
In August 2020, C.GEN applied for an non-material change to the development consent order to extend the deadline to implement the Project.
