Aalborg Energie Technik a/s (AET) Biomass Boiler Plant


Tilbury Green Power Ltd., London, UK

The Tilbury Green Power (TGP) project demonstrates the Irish Utility Electricity Supply Board's (ESB) continued commitment to renewable electricity generation and further reducing their carbon footprint.

The plant owners ESB, Green Investment Bank (GIB) and AET point out that the generated power will be 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.


Positive Effect in London Area

The power plant is fuelled with 270,000 tonnes of waste wood per year, which is supplied by Stobart Biomass. The catchment area for the fuel is from within the London area, so the plant will reduce the amount of waste wood going to landfills.


The plant has created 370 jobs during the construction phase and approximately 50 permanent jobs in on-going operations.


The plant has commenced operations in 2017.
