London Gateway power station gets go-ahead

Energy Minister Charles Hendry has given the go-ahead for a 900MW gas power plant at the London Gateway Logistics Park, which is being developed on the old Shellhaven site at  Coryton in Essex.


The park, which is being developed by DP World will have some 9.25m sq ft of warehouse space.

Hendry said: “The Gateway Energy Centre will play an important role in providing secure electricity supplies to around a million homes across the South East, supplying heat and power to the neighbouring London Gateway Port and Logistics and Business Park and bringing jobs and investment to Essex.”
