Plans for a £40m power station hailed as "the biggest thing that's ever happened" in a North East Town have been approved.

French owner Dalkia's proposals for a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Plant in Chilton, Co Durham, were backed by planners yesterday. It will be capable of diverting up to 115,000 tonnes of wood from landfill and producing 50,000 tonnes of wood pellets, hot water and 15 megawatts of electricity - enough to power 15,000 homes.

GOOOOOOOOD!

We landfill up to 80% (HOW MUCH??? YES, It's true!) of our waste wood, which is disgraceful.

This place will pellet waste wood, and burn it to drive their turbines, and then will give us locals locally produced sustainable power at 20% below market prices, which will be brilliant cos apparently I live in one of the most expensive places for power supply. :roll:

I'd heard it had been refused (six weeks ago) so am very glad indeed it's going ahead. I want them to be looking for people to work there, I do. I'm a gas turbine technician by trade, and am 12 years time served, can be a local keyholder, and could walk to work.   :mrgreen:

Sounds ideal for you. I think it's going to employ something like 30 people, but will take two years before it's in operation.
