ECOSITE ACCREDITATION OF NORTH MOLE POWER STATION
ESG Press Release
24th February 2017
The ESG understands that our new power station will be a huge improvement on power generation for Gibraltar and will be welcomed by a very patient community. We also welcome the fact that the project has been planned to minimise its effect on the surrounding sea, and to minimise noise and light pollution during its construction phase.
Nevertheless the ESG believes it is essential that the impact that industry has on the environment is independently assessed and monitored and we continue to correspond and meet with Government officials to ensure that this level of transparency and best available technology are implemented in the new project for its operational stage.
In this context the self – awarding of an Ecosite status on the construction of the Power Station by Bouygues is not meaningful to the ESG who urge the company to obtain independent accreditation of their efforts to give these real credibility.
