The 40MW biomass power plant is being built for Glennmont Partners, a specialist clean energy investment fund. Once completed, it will burn up to 250,000 tonnes of waste wood a year.
Construction started in February 2015. Shepherd Engineering Services is scheduled to start on site in May 2016 and conclude in early 2017, ahead of the plant’s expected completion by the second quarter of 2017.
Shepherd Engineering Services also worked on the biomass conversion of Drax power station in Selby, as well as the Polmadie recycling and renewable energy centre in Glasgow (also with Interserve) and the Greater Manchester waste project.
