Client Knottingley Power Limited
Region West Yorkshire
Ardent was appointed by Knottingley Power Limited in 2013 to provide land and property advice in relation to Knottingley Power’s Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power station. The project proposes the development of a power station located on the site of the former Oxiris Chemical works, east Knottingley, Yorkshire. The development includes the construction of a 1500MW CCGT power station and associated infrastructure. The development comprises an 8km pipeline to bring natural gas from the gas network to the power station site, an electrical connection to a National Grid substation and two linear water pipe routes for cooling. Once operational the CCGT power station will be a source of affordable, secure and clean electricity and will supply up to two million homes.
Ardent carried out the Land Referencing process and organised access to land for a wide range of ecological surveys to feed into the optioneering process. This helped to inform the final preferred pipeline routes. Ardent prepared the Book of Reference and Land Plans for the DCO submission in September 2013. Alongside the application process and during the Examination, Ardent assisted the client with landowner engagement and negotiating agreements and responded to questions and representations through the Hearing process.
It was announced on 10 March 2015 that the Secretary of State had granted Development Consent which came into force in April 2015.
