CHP plant signs EPC contract

A 12MWe (42MWt) CHP plant near Newark will allow animal rendering company J G Pears to replace 90% of the fossil fuels used in its process with meat and bone meal (MBM). Planning permission for the project was first sought in 2011 and it won consent on appeal in 2014.

Aalborg Energie Technik has announced it will engineer, procure and construct the project. The delivery will include all elements of the cogeneration plant, such as the fuel storage, fuel handling and feeding system, AET Combustion System and AET Biomass Boiler, steam turbine, air cooled condenser, flue gas cleaning system, PLC control, SCADA system and buildings. The plant will be equipped with an efficient SCR system to ensure low emission levels. Handover is expected to take place in early 2018.

The power generated will be used on-site with the excess exported.
