Reliance Energy Ltd. is soon to submit an application to Fylde Borough Council for Hazardous Substances Consent. The Hazardous Substances application will seek permission to store 49 tonnes of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) on site, to be used as a fuel to fire 6 engines that will provide flexible energy generation to feed into the National Grid. These facilities, referred to as FlexGen Facilities provide electricity at times when the Grid is under stress, and typically operate for up 3-3,000 hours per annum.
Hazardous Substances Consent Application
Consent is required to store the LNG in a secure vessel, within a secure compound. This application only deals with the LNG unloading and storage. The attached plans show the location of the comound in the wider site
compound. The key consultee will be the Health and Safety Executive. Typically the HSE take a significant time to respond and that is why this application is being submitted now.
Unlike planning applications, the Planning (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2015 requires an advert to be placed in the local press and on site in advance of submission of the planning application to Fylde Borough
Council. That is the reason the application cannot be viewed on line.
A web-link has now established. This includes access to the supporting forms and certificates that will be submitted on 23rd August 2018. It also includes site plans. Once the application id formally submitted and
validated, it will be available on the Planning Search function on Fylde Borough Council’s website.
An application for full planning permission will follow the HSC application. It will seek permission to build and operate the FlexGen Facility and will be accompanied by a suite of technical documents.
