Power station sale

RUSSIAN company Gazprom is said to be interested in buying Sutton Bridge power station.

EDF acquired British Energy and made a number of commitments to the European Commission, including disposal of the 819MW combined gas turbine power plant in Sutton Bridge.

Its sale is being handled by EDF’s agents Rothschild.

The Spalding Guardian contacted Rothschild yesterday but there was no one available to comment on the sale plans or potential buyers.
