Drax Moves Forward With 600MW Scottish Hydro Scheme

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on reNEWS.BIZ.

This is the sub-heading.

Studio Pietrangeli has been appointed as owner’s engineer for the project

It looks like this 600 MW project, which will turn Drax’s 440 MW pumped storage hydroelectric power station into 1 GW power station, is finally on its way.

Reading about this project on the Internet, there are still some hurdles to be overcome before the power station is upgraded.

  • Planning permission is needed.
  • Both the UK and Scottish Governments need to give permission.
  • Argyle and Bute Council are not totally behind the project.

My view as a Control Engineer, is that we need it to help balance the grid and allow wind power to play its full part.
