Amsterdam, the Netherlands [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] The construction of a multi-fuel power plant by the Dutch utility group Nuon can be restarted at the end of August, after all necessary permits have been granted.
In May 2008 the construction of the so-called Nuon Magnum plant – which will be capable of burning gas, biomass and coal – was halted due to delay in the permit procedures.
Nuon has now obtained all permits necessary for restarting the construction of the plant, which will be located in the Eemshaven in Groningen. The plant has a capacity of 1200 MW and is designed to reduce dependence on a single type of fuel. Moreover, the applied technology will enable Nuon to respond flexibly to the fluctuating availability of sources such as wind energy, it says in a statement.
