Holyhead biomass plant wins approval

Energy minister Charles Hendry has given the green light to a 299MW biomass power station at Penrhos Works, Holyhead, Anglesey.

Plant operator Anglesey Aluminium Metal Renewables is expected to source fuel from both imported and local sources, with imports coming in through the Port of Holyhead.

The construction phase will employ up to 600 people, with a further 100 full time personnel during operation.
