John Laing Environmental Assets (JLEN) has acquired Warren Power Limited and its anaerobic digestion plant.
The Warren AD plant is located in Norfolk, UK and became operational in March 2016. The plant has a thermal capacity of c.5MWth and mainly produces biomethane to be injected to the national gas grid. The plant also has a 0.5MWe combined heat and power (CHP) engine and is accredited under the renewable heat incentive (RHI) and feed-in-tariff (FiT) schemes.
“We are pleased with JLEN’s continued investment in the anaerobic digestion sector, with this acquisition of its second AD plant in Norfolk, complementing JLEN’s Egmere plant located nearby,” said Richard Morse, chairman of JLEN.
“We also value this opportunity to include a second transaction with Amersham and look forward to working with our partner, Future Biogas, to continue the strong performance of this asset.”
Future Biogas will continue to manage, operate and maintain the AD plant after the purchase. Future Biogas and JLEN already work together on several AD plants, including Vulcan, Merlin, Biogas Meden, Egmere and Grange Farm.
