Our proposals at West Burton

EDF recently secured a Development Consent Order for a new gas-fired peaking plant power station of up to 299 megawatts (MW) at the existing West Burton Power Station site, known as West Burton C. This is a welcome decision and we would like to thank all of those who participated in the planning process. Due to current challenging market conditions, there are no immediate plans to build this power station at the moment. 

Should you have any queries please contact the Project team via enquiries@westburtonc.co.uk
