Energy giant Eon has been meeting with contractors to determine exactly how funds for the £1.5 billion Kingsnorth power station rebuild will be spent – as the Government continues to debate approval for the key scheme.

Laing O’Rourke, Morgan Est, Balfour Beatty, Kier, Bam Nuttall and a Costain/Hochtief joint venture are all bidding for the work, which has been divided into four packages – piling, enabling works, cooling water system civils works and the ‘power island’ (the main building).

One bidder said: “It’s difficult to say how much each package will be worth, there’s a lot of work being done to evaluate them. “And everything depends on when the Government gives approval for the job, it feels like we could still be a long way off.”
