Pub­lic power plant meet­ing

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

SSE, one of Ire­land’s en­ergy util­i­ties, is pro­gress­ing in its pro­posal for a 208MW peaker power gen­er­a­tion plant at Platin on land owned by SSE and in an area where in­dus­trial use has been per­mit­ted and is es­tab­lished.

Ahead of sub­mit­ting ap­pli­ca­tions for plan­ning per­mis­sion for the two sep­a­rate project com­po­nents to Meath County Coun­cil and An Bord Pleanála later this month, SSE is host­ing a sec­ond Drop-In Pub­lic In­for­ma­tion Event for the lo­cal com­mu­nity, in the Car­ranstown Lodge, Drogheda Road, Duleek on Wed­nes­day De­cem­ber 5th be­tween 6pm and 8pm.

This event will pro­vide in­for­ma­tion on the re­fine­ments made to the pro­posal, as well as pro­pos­als for a Cap­i­tal Grant Scheme to ben­e­fit the im­me­di­ate lo­cal com­mu­nity.

The pro­posed de­vel­op­ment will com­prise of four open cy­cle gas tur­bine units, each fully en­closed in their own hous­ing, as­so­ci­ated step-up grid trans­former units, and a 110kV trans­mis­sion sub­sta­tion which will con­nect the gen­er­a­tion plant to the na­tional elec­tric­ity 110kV trans­mis­sion sys­tem.
