SSE announced that it would be reopening the 735MW Keadby Power Station in North Lincolnshire, in response to the coal-to-gas shift which was already taking place across the electricity market. Subsequently, SSE announced that the new power station that it planned to construct –Keadby 2 – would be the first of its kind in the UK.

This combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) facility will take advantage of innovative, highly efficient gas-fired generation technology in order to become the UK’s most efficient power facility to date. Once in operation, the new power station will be able to generate up to 840MW of electricity.
