Also known as a ‘peaking’ plant, the STOR plant will provide electricity
generation at short notice to the electricity network at times when generation
from renewable sources, typically wind turbines and solar arrays, fails to
generate as expected due to lack of wind or sunlight.
The 0.32 ha site is located off Chemistry Lane, Queensferry. The vacant land
forms part of a wider employment allocation at Chester Road East (Policy EM1
of the 2011 Flintshire Unitary Development Plan).
2.2 The application site is bound to the north by an existing electrical substation,
beyond which is a railway line; and to the east by Chemistry Lane. There are
no physical boundaries to the south and west of the application site.
The proposed STOR will comprise seven combustion engine driven electricity
generating sets that together will create a total of around 14MW of energy.
Each engine generator set will sit in its own acoustic containment cell, side-byside
within a bespoke plant building. The total thermal output of the generating
plant will be limited to 50MWth.

You were correct, Queensferry, or near enough.
As you go into NW there are a load of wierd stuffs that look like resevioir bunkers but with added wierdness. For example this house is situated right on top of one... never known a house built on a resevoir before?
