Plans move forward for Welsh biomass plant

Plans to build a biomass-fired power plant at the former Anglesey Aluminium works near Holyhead, Wales are progressing after the UK government approved design changes proposed by Lateral Power.

The plant will generate around 299MW of electricity, which is enough to power around 3,000 homes.

A proposal to construct the plant was first submitted in 2009. The Department of Energy and Climate Change gave consent in 2011, with the license granted a year later.

According to reports, DECC said 'ministerial consent' have been given to allow for some technologies changes to the biomass generating station.
