Farmgen turns on Cumbrian AD plant
AD plant developer Farmgen has started operations at its plant at Dryholme Farm, West Cumbria in the UK.
The biogas plant cost £4 million (€4.7 million) to install and started supplying electricity to the national grid on 4 November. The project was partly financed by Nuclear Management Partners, which supplied a £350,000 grant.
The plant converts locally farmed crops into 1.2MW of renewable electricity – enough to power over 2,200 homes.
