Aalborg Energie Technik a/s Biomass Power Plant
The plant owners, Electricity Supply Board (ESB), Green Investment Bank (GIB), BWSC and AET point out that the generated power is equivalent to powering approximately 70,000 homes.
Senior debt funding has been provided by the Danish Export Credit Agency (Eksport Kredit Fonden), Investec and Rabobank.
The Tilbury Green Power (TGP) power plant, with a net electrical output of 40 MWe, is fuelled with recycled waste wood e.g. from contruction sites.
Due to the location close to London, directly by the River Thames, the power plant helps in reducing the amount of waste in the city. The plant consumes approx. 270,000 tonnes of waste wood per year, which is sourced from the local catchment area. The plant created approx. 370 jobs duing the construction phase and approx. 50 permanent jobs in on-going operations.
AET and BWSC were responsible for construction and now for operation and maintenance of the biomass-fired power plant throughout a 20-year period.
The TGP plant commenced operations in 2017.
