Gas power stations under review

MORE than £2 billion-worth of contracts are under threat after the government suspended plans to build 28 new gas-fired power stations.

Projects hit by the six-month review include Bechtel's £300 million InterGen power station at Spalding, Lincolnshire. Other affected schemes include sites at Croydon, Swansea, Ellesmere Port and Anglesey.

But the Construction Confederation reassured worried contractors that the proposed gas power stations currently under review will be built.
