Drax Could Get New Power Plant


8:26am 16th July 2013

A thousand new jobs could come to Drax as a new power plant is put forward.

The White Rose station would provide electricity to six-hundred-and-thirty-thousand homes.

Ninety percent of the pollution would be captured and buried under the North Sea, say Captive Power, a consortium comprising of Drax, Alstom and BOC Linde.

If planning consent is gained, construction could start by 2016.

A public exhibition is being held at Selby Town Hall today (16th July) and tomorrow (17th July) at the Junction in Goole from 2pm until 8pm.
