Bester Generación begins construction on UK biomass power plant
Bester Generación, a company dedicated to the development, engineering, construction, operations and maintenance of renewable energy infrastructures, has broken ground on a combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Northamptonshire, UK.
Construction began following the closure of £23 million (€29 million) in project finance. It is expected to take around 12 months, with the plant slated to begin operations in early 2016.
'The road has been hard, but it is now a reality and we will move as qiockly as possible to begin operating in early 2016,' says Bester Generación CEO, Macías Sánchez.
The plant will generate 4.8MW of electricity and will have a production capacity of about 38,400 MWh per year. This is enough to power 12,800 homes, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 9,500 tonnes.
