If planning permission for the proposed power station is granted, a peak of up to 1600 engineering and construction jobs would be created during the four years it would take to build the facility. Approximately a further 160 workers would be required during the forty or so years of plant operation.
Other local jobs are likely to be secured during its lifetime: for every person directly employed, an additional one or two jobs would be supported in the region through providing services to the plant.
