Background

Sembcorp is proposing to build on the former site of the Teesside power station, retired in 2013 and subsequently dismantled.[3] They submitted the original application for this plant in 2017, with approval in 2019.[4]

The application has not been withdrawn but there has been very little news since 2019. In 2021 the project applied for 543 MW new generation in the T-4 Capacity Market 2024-2025 auction, but they were not listed in the final results.[5][6][7] This would qualify them for government subsidies to guarantee electricity supply.[8] It is unclear if financing depended on these subsidies.
