THE MP for Stretford and Urmston visited Carrington Power Station to see at first-hand how the development was progressing.

Kate Green visited the site on July 29 and was told it has recently entered the 'mechanical phase' and the site is altering on a daily basis as new structures are erected.

Ms Green was given a presentation by project manager, Rainer Lueoend, to update her on what had been happening since her first visit in May 2013.

The MP said: “The transformation on site was tremendous.

"Huge structures are in place and the power station is really taking shape. Alstom and DF have done a good job with minimising the disturbance of the construction programme on the local community and I hope that this will continue.

"I was also pleased to hear of the funding and spend within the local area.”

Project updates and images of the site are available to view at

The construction of the power station is due to be completed late 2015, followed by a period of commissioning before coming into full operation.

The station, once operational can meet the electricity demands of more than one million homes.
