Plans to build the South Hook combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Pembrokeshire have been cancelled.

Earlier this month stakeholders were advised the project was scrapped due to “current market conditions”, according to a spokesperson from South Hook CHP.

ExxonMobil Power, Qatar Global Ventures and Total Gas and Power Business Services planned to build and operate the plant within the existing boundary of the South Hook Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal.

The CHP plant was expected to produce enough electricity to power up to 900,000 homes.

The plans were approved by DECC in 2014.
