Iberdrola’s Scottish Power May Build U.K. Gas-Fired Power Plant

Iberdrola SA (IBE)’s Scottish Power may build a gas-fired power plant near Bristol, southwest England.

“The very first stage of consultation is set to begin this month,” Scottish Power said today in an e-mailed statement.

The company is considering a so-called combined cycle gas turbine station that will generate as much as 1,200 megawatts of electricity and would be known as Avon Power Station, it said.
