The power station is, says the company, the first phase of an integrated bioenergy development on a 36 hectare site 4km from the port of Immingham.
The new plant will, says Helius Energy, produce enough renewable electricity for around 100,000 homes, and will save approximately 450,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year compared with a similarly sized coal-fired power station. Options to use the heat produced by the plant either on site or locally are also being considered.
"This consent allows Helius Energy to begin to implement our plans for the production of renewable electricity from sustainable biomass", said John Seed, Managing Director of Helius Energy.
"Now that we have been granted consent by the Secretary of State we look forward to working closely with North East Lincolnshire Council to bring this project to completion."
