2015 Environmental Performance

There were no reportable incidents or breeches of the conditions of the Environmental Permit during 2015.

Routine visits and audits carried out by the area NRW inspector have demonstrated that the site is compliant with its environmental responsibilities.

Gas and electricity markets continued to be adverse in 2015 but still allowed Deeside to operate regularly during the year, although in ‘two-shift’ operation. This is the term given to plant operation requiring start up and shut down within the same day. The plant still emits significantly less greenhouse gas and acid forming gas emissions than conventional coal-fired power plants due to low sulphur content of the fuel gas and relatively low NOx emissions.

At the end of March, due to the demand in output from gas fired plants Deeside declared its capacity on to the National Grid down to 260 MW (half its previous capacity). This means that it can only run one of its two gas turbines for normal electricity market trading. However it has also secured a “Supplemental Balancing Reserve” (SBR) contract with National Grid to meet Winter Peak Demand in emergency conditions. When called upon under this contract both gas turbines need to run simultaneously.

The emissions from the gas turbine stacks are continuously monitored as required by the site Environmental Permit that is policed by Natural Resources Wales (NRW). In 2015 we remained compliant with BS EN 14181 as required by the Large Combustion Plant Directive. The site has never exceeded its authorised limits to air since commencing commercial generation in 1994.

During 2015 Deeside has reviewed its air emissions performance and proposed lower emissions limits for the Regulator to incorporate into a new Environmental Permit. This permit has now been issued and is effective from 1st January 2016 in compliance with the Industrial Emissions Directive.

Amongst targets achieved during 2015 were:

Implement new JEP Monitoring Reporting & Compliance Protocol

Submit report to Natural Resources Wales on Emissions compliance post 2015 in Accordance with Regulation 60 Notification

Provide Operator training for new Permit conditions and limits

Assess introduction of additional waste bins to aid recycling with new Waste Services Provider and provide additional staff training

Improve automation of start-up sequences where practicable to ensure consistency of time and energy savings.

Evaluate options for determining quantity of rainwater make up to the Cooling Towers.

Comply with corporate/regional targets as required

The station management has approved Deeside's environmental policy for 2016. This largely reflects Deeside’s commitment to full compliance with the Environmental Permit requirements and continual improvement of our ISO 14001 certified Environment Management System.

Deeside Power
2014 Environmental Performance

There was one incident reportable under the conditions of the Environmental Permit which occurred during 2014. A small quantity of fuel oil remaining in the pipework when the old fuel oil tanks were dismantled was accidentally released onto waste ground adjacent to the tanks. Approximately 6 Cu. Metres of oil contaminated soil was removed to an appropriately licenced waste facility. The regulator – Natural Recourses Wales (NRW) were fully satisfied with the response to this incident.

During 2014 Deeside installed a new water intake screen which makes it fully compliant with the 2009 Eels Regulations ahead of the 2015 target for compliance.

Routine visits and audits carried out by the area NRW inspector have demonstrated that the site is compliant with its environmental responsibilities.

Gas and electricity markets continued to be adverse in 2014 but still allowed Deeside to operate regularly during the year, although in ‘two-shift’ operation. This is the term given to plant operation requiring start up and shut down within the same day. The plant still emits significantly less greenhouse gas and acid forming gas emissions than conventional coal-fired power plants due to low sulphur content of the fuel gas and relatively low NOx emissions, and even during two-shift operation manages an average annual thermal efficiency of well over 48%.

The smaller amount of generation has led to a change in emissions and discharges. Because it is necessary for the plant to start and stop more often, and a more flexible generation pattern is required, less carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen are emitted from the plant.

Amongst targets achieved during 2014 were:

Report to Natural Resources Wales on Eels compliance

Development of Emissions Monitoring & Reporting System compatible with the JEP MRC Protocol for Managing & Reporting IED / TNP Emissions from Jan 2015

Installation of new MCW intake screen to comply with Eels Regulations requirements

Installation of oil density valve pit alarm

Completion of site specific waste training

Compliance with corporate/regional targets as required

We continued to offer an educational facility for local schools during the year, which incorporates the Energy Garden completed in 2005. This is an on-site facility providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

The station management has approved Deeside's environmental policy for 2015. This largely reflects Deeside’s commitment to full compliance with the Environmental Permit requirements and continual improvement of our ISO 14001 certified Environment Management System.

Targets for 2015 include:

Implement JEP Monitoring Reporting & Compliance Protocol

Submit report to Natural Resources Wales on Emissions compliance post 2015 in Accordance with Regulation 60 Notification

Provide Operator training for new Permit conditions and limits

Assess introduction of additional waste bins to aid recycling with new Waste Services Provider

Improve automation of start-up sequences where practicable to ensure consistency of time and energy savings.

Evaluate options for determining quantity of rainwater make up to the Cooling Towers.

Review relevant key procedures in line with condition of revised permit when issued

Comply with corporate/regional targets as required

Deeside Power
2013 Environmental Performance

There were no breaches of the Environmental Permit During 2013

During research into work needed to meet compliance with the new Eels regulations it was discovered that Deeside had been fitted with a water intake screen with a mesh slightly larger than specified in our Abstraction Licence. We have agreed with Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to replace the screen in 2014 with a state of the art design which will not only correct this but also be fully compliant with the Eels Regulations. Routine visits and audits carried out by the area NRW inspector have demonstrated that the site is compliant with its environmental responsibilities.

Gas and electricity markets in 2013 allowed Deeside to operate regularly during the year, although in ‘two-shift’ operation. This is the term given to plant operation requiring start up and shut down within the same day. The plant still emits significantly less greenhouse gas and acid forming gas emissions than conventional coal-fired power plants due to low sulphur content of the fuel gas and relatively low NOx emissions, and even during two-shift operation manages an average annual thermal efficiency of well over 48%.

The smaller amount of generation has led to a change in emissions and discharges. Because it is necessary for the plant to start and stop more often, and a more flexible generation pattern is required, less carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen are emitted from the plant. 

Amongst targets achieved during 2013 were:

Make further reductions in energy use during operation of the plant
Audit waste contractor premises for compliance with duty of care requirements
Maintain compliance with ISO 14001
Comply with any relevant corporate/regional targets
Make further improvements in waste minimisation and recycling and keep waste sent to landfill to less than 20t

We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools, which incorporates the Energy Garden completed in 2005. This is an on-site facility providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.
The station management has approved Deeside's environmental policy for 2013. This largely reflects Deeside’s commitment to full compliance with the Environmental Permit requirements and continual improvement of our ISO 14001 certified Environment Management System.

Targets for 2014 include:

Develop Emissions Monitoring & Reporting System compatible with the JEP MRC Protocol for Managing & Reporting IED / TNP Emissions from Jan 2015
Install new MCW intake screen to comply with Eels Regulations requirements
Submit report to Natural Resources Wales on Eels compliance
Install oil density valve pit alarm
Introduce site specific waste training
Evaluate options for upgrading CEMS for implementation in 2015
Evaluate condition of Environmental Spill Unit and renovate if practicable
Comply with corporate/regional targets as required

 

Deeside Power
2012 Environmental Performance

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any permit or licence conditions during the past year. Performance against site policy was considered during the year, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

Gas and electricity markets in 2012 allowed Deeside to operate regularly during the year, although in ‘two-shift’ operation. This is the term given to plant operation requiring start up and shut down within the same day. The plant still emits significantly less greenhouse gas and acid forming gas emissions than conventional coal-fired power plants due to low sulphur content of the fuel gas and relatively low NOx emissions, and even during two-shift operation manages a thermal efficiency of around 50%.
The smaller amount of generation has led to a change in emissions and discharges. Because it is necessary for the plant to start and stop more often, and a more flexible generation pattern is required, less carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen are emitted from the plant. 
Amongst targets achieved during 2012 were:

Make further reductions in energy use during operation of the plant

To do this, amongst other things we replaced two air compressors with a more efficient version and reduced the start-up period of the gas turbines to reduce energy input

Review and revise environmental procedures
Continue improvements in waste disposal and recycling

Despite a major plant outage in 2012, waste to landfill remained relatively low

Comply with relevant corporate targets

We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools, which incorporates the Energy Garden completed in 2005. This is an on-site facility providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

Continue improvements in waste disposal and recycling.
Comply with relevant corporate targets.


Deeside Power
2010 Environmental Performance

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any permit or licence conditions during the past year. Performance against site policy was considered during the year, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

Gas and electricity markets in 2010 allowed Deeside to operate at base load regularly during the early part of the year, although in the fourth quarter changes to market pricing led to an increase in ‘two-shift’ operation. This is the term given to plant operation requiring start up and shut down within the same day. With a thermal efficiency of around 52%, along with the low sulphur content of the fuel gas, the plant still emits significantly less greenhouse gas and acid forming gas emissions than conventional coal-fired power plants.

Amongst targets achieved during 2010 were:
Improvements to management of project quality plans
Improvements in waste segregation to enable better recycling
Modification to lighting in various areas to trial movement sensors, enabling wider use in 2011

We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools, which incorporates the Energy Garden completed in 2005. This is an on-site facility providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

Fit additional movement sensors to site lighting to reduce energy use
Investigate reductions in energy use during gas turbine start up and shut down


2009 Environmental Performance

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any permit or licence conditions during the past year. Performance against site policy was considered during the year, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

During 2009, electricity market conditions associated with a major plant outage led to a slight decrease in our annual output when compared to the previous year. Despite thermal efficiency at about 52% we noted a slight increase in specific emissions over last year, mainly due to the operational regime. However, due to the low sulphur content of the fuel gas, we still produced significantly less greenhouse and acid-forming gas emissions than conventional coal and oil-fired power plants.

Amongst targets achieved during 2009 were:
The replacement of a silencer on a steam ejector system; improved methods of showing completion of audit actions; the audit of several waste contractors to show compliance with waste management legislation; plan for reductions in emissions by evaluation of future investment in plant, and investigations into reducing methane emissions from venting.

The site was also able to increase plant capability through improved full load efficiency by updating gas turbine components, leading to further net reductions in emissions of oxides of nitrogen and carbon dioxide per MWh.

We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools, which incorporates the Energy Garden completed in 2005. This is an on-site facility providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

The station management has approved Deeside's environmental policy for 2010. This largely reflects Deeside’s commitment to full compliance with the Environmental Permit requirements and continual improvement of our ISO 14001 certified Environment Management System.

Targets for 2010 include:
The introduction of quality plans for outage work; aim to make further reductions in waste production, and survey lighting to reduce energy use.

2008 Environmental Performance

During 2008, Deeside sought to remain competitive through increased plant flexibility. This again led to a significant increase in our output compared to the previous year. With our thermal efficiency at about 52%, coupled with the low sulphur content of the fuel gas, this still results in significantly less greenhouse and acid-forming gas emissions than conventional coal- and oil-fired power plants.

The station management has approved Deeside's environmental policy for the coming year. This largely reflects Deeside’s commitment to the Environmental Permit and continued commitment to ISO 14001. Performance against site policy was considered during the year, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

Amongst targets achieved during 2008 were:
Completion of reports required under the Environmental Permit improvement programme, assessment of methods of reducing emissions to air from the gas turbines, full compliance with relevant standards for monitoring of emissions to air and re-route site drainage to enable use for process cooling to improve discharge control and reduce water use.

Targets for 2008 include:
Comply with relevant standards for measurement of water discharges, install silencer to air ejector to reduce noise impact, improve environmental awareness training for staff and reduce waste sent to landfill.

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any permit or licence conditions during the past year.

We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools, which now incorporates the Energy Garden completed in 2005. This is an on-site facility providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

 

2007 Environmental Performance

During 2007, Deeside sought to remain competitive through increased plant flexibility. This led to a significant increase in our output compared with 2006. With our thermal efficiency at about 51%, coupled with the low sulphur content of the fuel gas, this still results in significantly less greenhouse and acid-forming gas emissions than conventional coal and oil-fired power plants.

The station management has approved Deeside's environmental policy for the coming year. This largely reflects Deeside’s commitment to the new IPPC permit and its associated improvement programme. Performance against site policy was considered during the year, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

Amongst targets achieved during 2007 were:
Reports submitted for all improvement conditions under the PPC permit and awaiting comments from the Environment Agency; improvements to waste management; improvements to our management of contracting work; and continued compliance with all other applicable environmental regulations.

Targets for 2008 include:
Ensure improvements required under IPPC Permit are achieved; consider methods to reduce emissions to air, such as reducing gas turbine run-up times and improving combustion concepts; improve waste management through auditing of waste contractors and considering reducing our ‘carbon footprint’; and ensuring our monitoring equipment is compliant with the relevant standards for discharges to water and emissions to air.

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any permit or licence conditions during the past year.

We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools, which now incorporates the Energy Garden completed in 2005. This is an on-site facility providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

Deeside Power
2006 Environmental Performance

During 2006, Deeside sought to remain competitive through increased plant flexibility. Market conditions, high gas prices in the early part of the year, and plant maintenance, however, forced a comparatively low output. The thermal efficiency is still relatively high, and coupled with the low sulphur content of the fuel gas results in significantly less greenhouse and acid-forming gas emissions than conventional coal- and oil-fired power plants.

The station management has approved Deeside's environmental policy for the coming year. This largely reflects Deeside’s commitment to the new IPPC permit and its associated improvement programme. Performance against site policy was considered during the year, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

Amongst targets achieved during 2006 were:

A successful application for an IPPC Permit, attainment of the revised ISO 14001:2004 standard, improvements to waste management, water minimisation audit, requirement for staff to comment on energy use on site, improvements to our management of contracting work and continued compliance with all other applicable environmental regulations.

Targets for 2007 include:

Ensure improvements required under IPPC Permit are achieved, continue to ensure competence of staff and contractors on site, aim to install replacement emissions monitoring equipment with MCERTS certification or accreditation and continue with improvements to waste management.
We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any of our authorisation or licence conditions during the past year.
We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools, which now incorporates the Energy Garden completed in 2005.

This is an on-site facility providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity
generation available.

Deeside Power
2005 Environmental Performance

During 2005, Deeside sought to remain competitive through increased plant flexibility. Market conditions and high gas prices, however, forced a comparatively low output. The thermal efficiency is still relatively high, and coupled with the low sulphur content of the fuel gas results in significantly less greenhouse and acid-forming gas emissions than conventional coal- and oil-fired power plants.

The station management has approved Deeside's environmental policy for the coming year. This is largely unchanged from last year's, and is consistent with International Power policy. Performance against site policy was considered during the year, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

Amongst targets achieved during 2005 were:
Completion of the Energy Garden project, improvements to the way we store waste oil on site, improvements to our management of contracting work and continued compliance with all applicable environmental regulations.

Targets for 2005 include:
Complete our IPPC application and carry out any improvements required by IPPC Permit conditions, Carry out a water minimisation audit, Review the Environmental Management System to ensure compliance with the revised ISO 14001 standard for environmental management, ensure compliance with EU Emissions Trading Scheme requirements and investigate improvements to management of waste on site.

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any of our authorisation or licence conditions during the past year. In addition, we have received no justified complaints from members of the public.

Deeside has maintained the standard required under ISO 14001 through assessment by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance.
We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools, which now incorporates the Energy Garden completed in 2005. This is an on-site facility providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

Deeside Power
2004 Environmental Performance

During 2004, Deeside sought to maximise income through increased flexibility. Market conditions and high gas prices, however, forced a comparatively low output. The thermal efficiency is still relatively high, and coupled with the low sulphur content of the fuel gas results in significantly less greenhouse and acid-forming gas emissions than conventional coal-fired power plants.

The station management has approved Deeside's environmental policy for the coming year. This is largely unchanged from last year's, and is slightly different from the International Power policy to account for differences in operation. Performance against site policy was considered during the year, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

Amongst targets achieved during 2004 were:

Continuation of our work with a local school on their environmental improvements, continuation with our Energy Garden Project and improved management of incident response.

Targets for 2005 include:

Completion of the Energy Garden project, prepare an application for our IPPC permit, improve our management of contracting work, look at ways of improving our waste recycling performance, and make improvements to the way we store waste oil on site.

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any of our authorisation or licence conditions during the past year. In addition, we have received no substantiated complaints from members of the public.

Deeside has maintained the standard required under ISO 14001 through audits by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance, and is currently working towards accreditation to the revised ISO 14001 standard.

We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools and are hoping this year to open our Energy Garden to local schools. This is an on-site
roject providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

Deeside Power
2003 Environmental Performance

With changes to the UK electricity generating market, through the New Electricity Trading Arrangements (NETA), and in response to unfavourable market conditions, one gas turbine was mothballed in April 2002. Deeside sought to maximise income through increased flexibility with the remaining gas turbine throughout most of 2002. The thermal efficiency is still relatively high, and coupled with the low sulphur content of the fuel gas results in significantly less greenhouse and acid-forming gas emissions than conventional coal-fired power plants. With improvements in the market in prospect, the decision was taken late in 2003 to recommission the second gas turbine.

Our parent company, International Power, produced a new environmental policy for 2003, and the local station management has approved a modified version of Deeside's environmental policy for the coming year. This is largely unchanged from last year's, and is slightly different from the International Power policy to account for differences in operation. Performance against site policy was considered during the year, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

Amongst targets achieved during 2003 were:

The setting of a performance target for all staff of no breaches of authorised limits or environmental complaints, various projects with local schools to improve the environment, and improvements to site oil storage arrangements.

Targets for 2004 include:

Commencement of an environmental project at a local school, completion of an external noise survey to ensure noise emission is effectively controlled, and measures to improve control of our waste disposal. The environmental project is due for completion in 2004.

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any of our authorisation or licence conditions during the past year. In addition, we have received no justified complaints from members of the public.

Deeside has maintained the standard required under ISO 14001 through audits by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance, and has removed one outstanding improvement point, issued at a recertification audit during 2002.

We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools in order demonstrate the environmental benefits of a CCGT power station compared to conventional plant, and are in the process of expanding of the resource this year with an Energy Garden Project, which also continues to form an environmental target. This is an on-site project providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

Deeside Power
2002 Environmental Performance

With changes to the UK electricity generating market, through the New Electricity Trading Arrangements (NETA), and in response to unfavourable market conditions, one gas turbine was mothballed from April 1st 2002. Deeside has sought to maximise income through increased flexibility with the remaining gas turbine throughout most of 2002. The thermal efficiency is still relatively high at 51.4%, and coupled with the low sulphur content of the fuel gas results in significantly less greenhouse and acid-forming gas emissions than conventional coal-fired power plants.

Our parent company, International Power, has produced a new environmental policy for 2003, and the local station management has approved a modified version of Deeside's environmental policy for the coming year. This is largely unchanged from 2002, and is slightly different from the International Power policy to account for differences in operation. Performance against site policy was considered during 2002, and all policy items were still felt to be relevant.

Amongst targets achieved during 2002 were:

The setting of a performance target for all staff of no breaches of authorised limits or environmental complaints, various projects with local schools to improve the environment, and improvements to site oil storage arrangements.

Targets for 2003 include an environmental project at a local school, an external noise survey to ensure noise emission is effectively controlled, and measures to improve control of our waste disposal.

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any of our authorisation or licence conditions during the past year. In addition, we have received no justified complaints from members of the public.

Deeside has maintained the standard required under ISO 14001 through audits by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance, and is working to remove one outstanding improvement point, issued at a recertification audit during 2002.

We continue to offer an educational facility for local schools in order demonstrate the environmental benefits of a CCGT power station compared to conventional plant, and are planning an expansion of the resource this year with an Energy Garden Project, which also forms an environmental target. This is an on-site project providing information to enable young engineers of the future to consider the implications of the various forms of electricity generation available.

Deeside Power
2001 Environmental Performance

Deeside has operated at base load throughout most of 2001, with an availability figure of more than 92%. A thermal efficiency of over 52% has been maintained. The high thermal efficiency coupled with the low sulphur content of the fuel gas results in significantly less greenhouse and acid-forming gas emissions than conventional coal-fired power plants.

The station management has approved the environmental policy for 2002. This is unchanged from 2001, and is slightly different from the International Power policy to account for differences in operation. All policy items were achieved during 2001, and were still felt to be relevant.

Amongst targets achieved during 2001 were:
A new air backwash system to improve availability was installed; a programme of work on the cooling water systems to improve control of bacteria was carried out, and an incident test involving the Environment Agency, the Fire Service and Ambulance Service was held. Local businesses were consulted, and a sulphuric acid spillage was simulated.

We are pleased to report that again there have been no breaches of any of our authorisation or licence conditions during the past year. In addition, we have received no complaints from members of the public.

Deeside has maintained the standard required under ISO 14001 through audits by LRQA, and in 2001 received no improvement points. A re-certification assessment is planned for 2002.
