Shoreham Port may soon be home to a revolutionary power plant
courtesy of specialist renewable energy company Edgeley Green Power Limited.
The £20 million modern power station is planned for a one acre site between
existing Shoreham Power Station and Parker Steel’s new processing plant on
Fishersgate Terminal at Shoreham Port. Shoreham Port is an ideal location for
the new power plant as the fuel can be brought in by ship, which will therefore
not impact on road traffic locally.
The proposed power plant, unlike weather-dependent green sources
of energy such as wind farms and solar power, offers energy 24 hours 7 days a
week. If the recent planning application is approved by Adur District Council,
the project will bring a wealth of benefits to the local area and economy, including
the creation of new jobs and the ability to power up to 18,000 homes in the
local area – the equivalent of powering more than the whole of Shoreham,
Southwick and Portslade. The power station will help the UK to hit renewable
Peter Davies, Shoreham Port’s Development Director, said “we see
energy generation as a key part of the Port’s future and Edgeley Green Power’s
proposal sits well alongside our other renewable projects, such as our current developments
in solar energy”.
