The UK’s Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has granted consent for the Keadby 3 carbon capture power station in north Lincolnshire. It is the first such project in the UK to gain planning permission and is backed by energy providers SSE Thermal and Equinor. 

The project involves a combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power station, comprising a CCGT unit with a capacity of up to 910MW electrical output, and capture 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year. This represents 15% of the UK government’s target for 2030. The plant could be operational as early as 2027. 

‘This news is a significant milestone for our joint ambition to deliver clean, flexible and efficient power to support intermittent renewable generation and maintain security of supply,’ says Grete Tveit, senior vice president for low carbon solutions at Equinor.
