Danish joint venture completes UK biomass power plant ahead of schedule
The joint venture of Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), PensionDanmark, and Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor (BWSC) has completed the construction of a £162 million (€233m) biomass power plant investment in the UK well ahead of schedule.
The construction of the Brigg Renewable Energy Plant, the JV’s first 40MW straw-fired biomass plant contracted in August 2013, has now been completed.
The plant was handed over to the owners in January after a construction period of less than 27 months, which is three months ahead of schedule and within the agreed investment budget.
Brigg, which is located in Lincolnshire, East England, is based on Danish biomass energy technology supplied by BWSC under a turnkey EPC contract.
Furthermore, BWSC is responsible for operation and maintenance of the plant under a 15-year O&M agreement, which commenced on the date of completion of the plant.
Brigg is owned by the CIP fund and Copenhagen Infrastructure I which has PensionDanmark as the founding and sole investor, together with BWSC.
