announce their plans
to Save Thrupp Lake
17th December 2008.
RWE npower, has finally signed an agreement to supply Waste Recycling Group (WRG) with the majority of the coal ash produced by the station over its remaining lifetime. This is the news that Save Radley Lakes have been waiting for after brokering discussions with WRG and NPower to come up with a solution to the need for ash disposal.
NPower say that along with the
recent £60m investment in new turbines at the gas-fired Didcot B
Power Station, today's deal will ensure the continued production of electricity
for over three million people, while supporting the local economy and
safeguarding jobs. The deal will provide WRG's Sutton Courtenay
site with ash for engineering purposes, and remove the need for disposal
at the Radley gravel pits, creating new opportunities for nature conservation.
