SinoFortone Group to invest £2 billion in two Welsh biomass power stations by Orthios Eco Parks

SinoFortone Group is to invest £2 billion in two two 299MWe biomass power stations by Orthios Eco Parks on Anglesey and in Port Talbot in South Wales.

Waste heat and carbon dioxide from the plant will be used to enhance the growth of fish and vegetables in hydroponic and aquaculture centres. The company is calling this process the ”Orthios Combined Food and Power solution”. The company plans to develop the UK sites over the next three years before replicating the model in China and then worldwide.

The first Orthios Eco Park has been designed to sit on the former Anglesey Aluminium site at Holyhead.
