RWE npower – Blyth post-combustion project
RWE npower prepared a feasibility study for a potential scheme to build and operate a 2400MW supercritical, "clean coal" power station on the site of the former Blyth Power Station at Cambois, Northumberland. The plant would have captured around 3 million tonnes of CO2 per annum, and would have incorporated technology to burn up to 10% of biomass to further reduce emissions.
In November 2009, the company announced that it had abandoned plans for the power station, citing economic conditions. No further developments have been announced for the site.
