Plans to build a new £230million power plant in Hartlepool that will create more than 300 jobs have been unveiled. Company Graythorp Energy Ltd intends to build a Combined Heat and Power plant on a 15-acre site at Tofts Road West, next to the Graythorp Industrial Estate south of Seaton Carew. Bosses say the plant would turn up to 550,000 tonnnes of dry household and industrial waste a year that would otherwise go to landfill or be sent to Europe into enough electricity to for around 100,000 homes. It will also be designed to be able to provide heat for local industries. A planning application is due to be submitted to Hartlepool Borough Council before the end of June.
