Proposed Connah’s Quay Low Carbon Power Project

This proposed development is for Uniper’s existing power station site at Connah’s Quay

who state they propose to develop a new combined cycle gas turbine power station with carbon capture technology to capture CO2 emissions.  These emissions would be transported (via a link pipeline from the site to a HyNet connection at Flint) to depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs in Liverpool Bay for storage.

The project could support the decarbonisation of the National Grid when there is insufficient generation from wind and solar farms.

Critical infrastructure needed for energy generation is already in place, including connection to the national Grid along with a pipeline to be repurposed to transport the captured CO2.

Information about the project is available at www.uniper.energy/connahs-quay-low-carbon-power

Development of National Significance

DNS/3251545 – Bretton Hall Solar Farm, Land at Bretton Hall Farm, Chester Road, Flintshire.

This development has now been recommended for planning permission by the Planning Inspector with the exception of the proposed outdoor classroom and associated disabled toilet due to high flood risk and compliance with a number of conditions.
