Pounds 400m Gas Station on Site of Uskmouth A to Go Ahead


Byline: By Aled Blake Western Mail

Mr Lambie said the turbine system being used by the company would also cut its carbon emissions, while the gas pipeline supplying the power station would be laid without disturbing wildlife by sinking trenches and putting the pipe below ground. …
