Commitments

Abergelli Power is a power generation project that can help support the UK’s future energy security and ensure that the country meets its low carbon emission targets. All efforts will be made to ensure minimum impact on the environment during its construction and operation.

Environment

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of the proposed development will be carried out and submitted as part of the application for development consent. The EIA will examine likely significant environmental effects of the Abergelli Power project. Issues such as noise, air emissions, ecology, visual impact, archaeology and traffic and transport will be considered. Under the EIA Regulations, a preliminary environmental information report (PEIR) will be made available for Phase 2 of the consultation process.

Feedback from both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the consultation will help inform the detailed EIA for the Abergelli Power project. The EIA will form a central part of the application for development consent and will inform the Planning Inspectorate and the Secretary of State’s decision.

Community Benefit

The Abergelli Power project can bring a range of benefits to the area during both construction and operation. Construction will take around two years and will provide job opportunities for approximately 150 skilled and semi-skilled workers.

The project is in an early stage of development. It is expected to have an operational life of at least 25 years during which time up to 15 full time staff will be required to support the management, operation and maintenance of the plant.

This investment will also support indirect jobs in the local community in areas such as facility maintenance and other support services. In addition, the facility will make a major contribution to local businesses and will be an active participant in the local community. A detailed socio-economic impact study will be submitted as part of our planning application.

Opportunities

Local businesses and individuals with an interest in working at the plant either during its construction or operation and who would like to be kept informed of developments with the project are invited to contact Abergelli Power via info@abergellipower.co.uk
