Edgeley Green Power’s plan is to develop a renewable combined heat and electricity generating facility on a brownfield site on Fishersgate Terminal, an established industrial and power generating area at Shoreham Port, near Fishersgate and Southwick. The proposed site is approximately one acre, between Shoreham Power Station and Parker Steel, on the south side of the port.
The planning consent for our project falls under the jurisdiction of Adur District Council.
The overall proposed development is made up of:
- A 43.5m long x 22.5m wide x 19m high engine hall which will house the power generating engines and alternators
- A 65m high chimney (stack) located next to the engine hall - this is significantly lower in height than the 105m Shoreham Power Station chimney next door
- A reception and administration building
- Four main storage tanks which will be painted using colours that blend in with the local environment. Three of these will be 11.8m wide and 16m high, with one smaller tank at 7.8m wide and 10m high
- Two small fuel tanks, measuring 1 x 4 x 6m and 1 x 6 x 9m
- A small boiler house adjacent to the front of the engine house
- A substation which will house a control room for the transformer operating equipment
- Transformers will be located on site to step up electricity from 11KVA to 33KVA for distribution via the Local Distribution Network.
