UK Coal investigates clean energy options

UK Coal investigates clean energy options
The UK's largest coal mining company has entered a deal to develop 14 wind farms on its land.

Doncaster-based UK Coal and Peel Holdings have reached an agreement to explore and assess the possibility of wind farms on the mining firm's land portfolio.

Peel Holdings has a 27 per cent stake in UK Coal and its subsidiary Peel Energy will be carrying out the projects at each site.

If all the projects, which are at different stages, were completed, there would be the potential for 54 wind turbines generating 133 megawatts of power, according to UK Coal.

"We believe there is significant opportunity to develop wind farms on parts of our land portfolio," said UK Coal chief executive Jon Lloyd said.

"This will accelerate our alternative power business whilst maintaining total flexibility on the level of investment we make in it and without distracting us from our core mining and property development operations."

Earlier this year Peel Energy officially opened its 26-turbine Scout Moor Wind Farm in Edenfield, Lancashire.

Hi there
you would be interested in this then,
Testing is to take place before February 2009 of a process unit that could see the end of coal, and nuclear plants for generating power.
Exciting nuclear plants would be able to be modified to be able to use the device, this includes nuclear powered submarines and ships.
No harmful emissions to worry about, ship that have the LM2500 gas turbines would benefit the most from this.
