Our proposals

A new state-of-the-art power station which would deliver electricity to upto 3 million Scottish homes and create permanent jobs is proposed for North Ayrshire.

Ayrshire Power is proposing to develop a new 1600 MW multi-fuel power station at Hunterston.

We are proposing a state-of-the-art facility fuelled by coal and up to 14% biomass with carbon capture and storage technology, providing low-carbon energy for decades to come.

The port-side location provides options for transporting the carbon dioxide either by pipeline or by ship to offshore storage sites.
