Aalborg Energie Technik a/s signed another EPC contract in the United Kingdom. The 42 MWt and 12 MWe cogeneration plant will be situated near Newark.
On 24 August 2016, Aalborg Energie Technik a/s signed a large contract with JG Pears Power Limited, for an EPC delivery of a biomass-fired 42 MWt / 12 MWe CHP plant near Newark, Nottinghamshire, in the UK. 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.
By implementing this cogeneration plant, the JG Pears facility will replace 90% of the fossil fuels previously used in the adjacent factory, saving significant carbon dioxide emissions. The plant will provide steam and electricity to the JG Pears rendering facility at Low Marnham, Newark. The CHP plant will also contribute to the UK’s energy needs by generating an average of 7 MWe, some of which will be used by the rendering plant with the balance exported to the National Grid.
