Proposed coal-fired power stations

North Killingholme IGCC Project in the United Kingdom was proposed by C.GEN in March 2011. The company states that the plant being studied would have an installed capacity of 520 megawatts with possible fuels varying from coal to a blend of "unconventional hard coal", petcoke and wood/biomass or even as a pure gas-fired plant. In a presentation on the project, C.GEN states that it owns land adjoining the existing Killingholme power station. The company stated in early 2011 that Parsons Brinkerhof "started permitting procedure 2010" and that in February 2011 it had filed an application to the European Union's New Entrant Reserve scheme for funding proposed CCS projects. The company claims that the project could be in "commercial operation" by 2015-2016.[2] The company's website refers to the project as a 475 megawatt plant which could be "either as a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) or as an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) plant, allowing for carbon capture and storage capabilities to be retrofitted." The company also states that "the target date for the start of commercial operation is 2016-2017."[3]
