Help following Eggborough Power Station closure02 February 2018
We are hugely disappointed to hear of the planned closure of Eggborough Coal Fired Powerstation, particularly for the people directly affected and the surrounding communities.
We have previously ensured that provision is available to retrain staff being made redundant, using European Social Funds already allocated to the region. We will work with Eggborough Power and Selby District Council to ensure this is utilised
Our area’s historic specialism in energy generation has left a legacy of energy infrastructure and a skilled workforce that will continue to underpin our economy in the years to come. Eggborough Power Limited’s ambition to establish a gas powered power station on the site is testament to this.
This will not be the end of energy generation in our area.
