PDE are currently working with Belfast Power Ltd, a division of Evermore Energy, reference the development of a new state of the art 400MW Combined Cycle Power Plant gas-fired power Station located in Belfast Harbour Industrial Estate.
The Belfast Power Plant will be based on the world class Siemens SCC-800 Combined cycle power plant and may help mark an era in low carbon energy generation in Northern Ireland.
The project is currently at the stage of seeking approvals from the HSE; PDE have been involved in this body of work.
When constructed the Belfast Power Station will generate sufficient power to supply the equivalent of 400,000 homes. It will bring a new supply of low carbon energy to Northern Ireland at a time when the existing fossil fuel power stations Northern Ireland are coming to the end of their useful life. It is envisaged that this will be one of the most advanced CCGT plants of its kind anywhere in the UK and Europe.
