Mayo Power replies to appeals

Mayo Power Ltd, which is planning a controversial mixed fuel combined heat and power plant at the former Asahi site in north Mayo, has responded to four appeals lodged to An Bord Pleanála. In its submission the directors of Mayo Power say one of the aims of the proposal is to utilise largely native and local fuels - notably peat and renewables - to generate electricity in the area.

Claiming the initiative will improve the electricity supply in the area, it says it will also reduce dependency on imported fossil fuels and bring jobs to a region which has suffered from depopulation.
