North Beck Energy Centre will create more thna 300 jobs during the three-year construction

Planning approval has been given for the North Beck Energy Centre in Immingham to be built.

The £220m development project is predicted to generate 49.5MW of electricity from about half a million tonnes of fuel derived from waste.

More than 300 jobs will be created during the project’s three year construction, followed by 40 full time posts once the plant is open.

A decision notice has been issued by North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC) to project developer North Beck Energy, granting permission to build the plant on vacant land zoned for industrial use, to the south east of Immingham Port.

James Baker, development director of North Beck Energy, said: “Using domestically sourced fuel, North Beck Energy will deliver a secure output of energy, unaffected by political and economic changes overseas and provide an economically stable investment for North East Lincolnshire.

“The benefits of this financial commitment, in terms of the jobs we are creating in this area, will be felt for a long time to come.”
