SIMEC delivers first stage of renewable power plant network set to bring GREENSTEEL vision closer The vision for a new, clean and competitive UK steel industry took a step closer today (Tuesday 26th July) with the commissioning of the first of a nationwide network of mini-power stations, designed to feed steel plants with on-demand renewable energy. Liberty Steel and SIMEC Power, have worked together to create the first of an eventual network of 14 ‘peaking plants’ which will be located next to the Group’s high energy consuming industrial sites across the UK. They will ensure continuation of low-cost, clean power supply during times of peak demand or periods when solar and wind power are not delivering. The first of these innovative installations – a 9MW plant driven by biofuel – was formally inaugurated today (July 26th) at Liberty Steel Newport by the newly-appointed Welsh Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, Ken Skates. © WALES NEWS SERVICE
