Ferrybridge Coal Station to Close Down
Posted on: 20/05/2015

Scottish and Southern Energy will soon close the Ferrybridge coal power station, as it is “no longer economical”.

The power station, located on the West and North Yorkshire border, will be closed by March 2016 by SSE.

Union leaders have described this closure as “devastating news” for the 172 employees currently working at the station despite SSE’s promises to redeploy staff “where possible.”

A combination of rising costs; environmental legislation and the predicted £100m loss over the course of the next five years have resulted in the Ferrybridge site being viewed as “unsustainable”.
