Desalination plant planned for Sizewell C – UK

Sizewell C is expected to host two EPRs producing 3.2 GWe similar to the Hinkley Point C plant, under construction in Somerset. EDF Energy submitted a development consent order (a planning application) for the plant in May 2020, which was granted in July 2022. In March, the UK’s Environment Agency granted environmental permits – a radioactive substances activity permit, a combustion activity permit and a water discharge activity permit – for the plant.

Sizewell C to power desalination plant with clean electricity – UK

Sizewell C aims to power its water desalination plant with zero carbon electricity from Sizewell B in a further move to make construction of the nuclear plant in Suffolk as green as possible, as the group’s Nick Osbourne writes.

The temporary desalination facility will ensure the Sizewell C project has the water it needs until a new water main provides a permanent supply in the early 2030s.

Desalination Project in Cornwall Faces Setback, Completion Delayed – UK

A project aimed at converting seawater into drinking water in Cornwall has suffered a setback and will now be completed from next summer. South West Water (SWW) initially had plans to have two desalination plants up and running by this September. However, the company has revised its plans and will build just one plant in Par, using seawater from St Austell Bay. The delay is attributed to complications regarding the sale of land.

Britain’s only desalination plant still out of action as hosepipe ban fears return – UK

Now Thames Water has revealed that although the maintenance work has now been completed it has since faced problems obtaining carbon dioxide, which is needed for a process where minerals are restored to the water after the removal of sea salt.

The desalination plant was opened as a drought contingency in 2010 and can supply drinking water to 400,000 homes in the capital at times of crisis.

Solar desalination via photovoltaic-thermal energy – UK

UK researchers have proposed the use of photovoltaic-thermal energy for desalination purposes, via an approach based on synergistic electro-thermal coupling mechanisms. They have found that some system configurations could offer a lower levelized cost of desalinated water, in addition to higher efficiencies.
