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

energy targets.

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”.
