Supply chain event planned for Keadby 2

SSE and Siemens have announced a Meet The Buyer forum for potential supply chain opportunities at Keadby 2. The event will be held on 4 December at The Double Tree by Hilton Forest Pines Resort.

The two companies officially broke ground at the new Keadby 2 CCGT on 24 October. The £350 million project will be constructed as a full turnkey solution by Siemens, which will also provide plant servicing under a 15-year contract. 

Siemens said the station will be the most efficient CCGT on the GB system, at 63% efficiency, and the turbine able to reach full combined cycle power in 30 minutes.

Work to demolish existing structures from the former coal fired plant to prepare the ground for construction of the new plant is already underway and is being completed by Brigg based contractor CLS.

From January 2019, work will begin on the station construction, beginning with piling ahead of construction of the main foundations and steel work for the main buildings. Components are scheduled to arrive during early 2020.
