Wrexham Power Limited (WPL) has now been granted a Development Consent Order (DCO) for the Wrexham Energy Centre, a new combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power station located at the Wrexham Industrial Estate. The WEC received its DCO after a thorough three-year process involving public consultation and examination by the Planning Inspectorate on behalf of the Government.

The WEC represents an investment of £300m and will:

  • Provide 30 highly skilled permanent local jobs
  • Create up to 515 construction jobs over three years
  • Provide an opportunity to increase the resilience of the power supply to the Wrexham Industrial Estate
  • Reduce the area's reliance on imported energy as well as improving its energy security.

Wrexham Energy Centre Planning Inspectorate examination now complete

In April 2016 our Development Consent Order (DCO) application for the Wrexham Energy Centre (WEC) was accepted by the Planning Inspectorate, the Government body responsible for examining DCO applications for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects such as the WEC.

A number of public hearings were held and written submissions made in order to help the Planning Inspector make an informed decision on whether to grant the project a DCO.

The examination period closed on 19 January 2017. WPL would like to thank all those who participated in the examination.

What happens next?

We will take time to consider our options as to how to best progress this long-term project.
