The £30m biofuel plant earmarked for the Southall gasworks site is progressing towards a planning submission, while NSouthall_gasworksational Grid have reawakened their plans for the larger site (pictured).

Client Blue-ng intends to submit a planning application in alte 2008. Blue-ng is a joint venture between National Grid Blue Power and 2OC.

It intends to deliver a minimum of 8, high efficiency Combined Cycle Bio-fuel Electricity Generation (CCBG) plants. They will run mainly on unrefined liquid oil (Biofuel) from rapeseed, palm, jatropha or similar organis materials. In the first phase of the plan, Blue-ng intends to build two pilot plants.

Meanwhile, National Grid has reawakened plans to build on the 80 acres of land around the iconic Southall Gas Works and plans to hold an exhibition of the designs next weekend.

The outline planning application would give the company permission to build around 3,750 homes on the plot, as well as several commercial units, a health centre and a new primary school. Detailed plans would be submitted next year.

The plans are going on display in the Dominion Centre in The Green next Friday, Saturday and Sunday. See the Ealing Times coverage for more detail.
