New UK biomass agreement signed by Tilbury Green Power
UK-based energy provider Tilbury Green Power (TGP) has agreed a new partnership with biomass fuel provider Hadfield Wood Recyclers.
Under the contract Hadfield will supply more than 50,000 tonnes of wood a year to TGP’s new power facility in Tilbury Docks, Essex. TGP is approved to use up to 650,000 tonnes of fuel per year at the facility including SRF and biomass fuel from virgin and recovered wood.
It is hoped the facility will generate up to 60MW of electricity and power around 100,000 houses.
‘We have established facilities at the site which we are in the process of expanding, so it makes perfect sense that we supply the recovered wood element of fuel for the boiler,’ says Hadfield MD Geoff Hadfield.
TGP is a subsidiary of Dutch company Express Energy Holdings UK.
