Knottingley Power

This website provides information on Knottingley Power’s plan to develop a modern and efficient Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power station at the site of the former Oxiris Chemical works, east Knottingley, Yorkshire.

The proposed CCGT power station will use natural gas, the same fuel that is used by many people for cooking and heating homes across the UK, to produce electricity. You can read more about our plans here. You can keep up-to-date with the project by visiting our News Page.

A new gas fired CCGT power station at Knottingley will bring many benefits to the local community as well as being a source of affordable, secure and clean electricity supply for up to two million homes.

As the project develops we will ask local people to have their say and give their thoughts on our proposals. More information on how we consult with local people can be found here. You can also find out more about who Knottingley Power is here.
