8 January 2016 – Project update

Hirwaun Power’s consented 299MW gas-fired generation project (on part of the Hirwaun Industrial Estate) did not secure a contract in the Government’s recent Capacity Market Auction for future power generation (held in December 2015) and therefore the project will not proceed during the course of this year (2016).

Given the need for new gas-fired power generation in the UK, Hirwaun Power intends to enter the project in the Government’s next Capacity Market Auction which is scheduled to be held in December 2016.

Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, the local planning authority, has been notified.
