The Environment Protection Directorate within MEPA gives notice that it has extended by a further week, the public consultation process for the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) application for the Delimara Power Station extension.
EneMalta, this week, presented the Environment Directorate with a modeling study entitled 'Prediction of the spread and dilution of cooling water from the Delimara Power Station', which although was not a compulsory requirement for the processing of the IPPC application was deemed relevant to the application.
For this reason the Authority is extending the closing date of the public consultation phase from the 30th September to the 7th October 2011.
