UK biomass plant commences operations
Fund management company Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) announced that its Templeborough biomass plant in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, UK has commenced operations.
“We are pleased to have achieved commercial operations, which is an important milestone. Construction was more challenging than expected however, we have always had a good cooperation with our EPC-contractors, advisors, authorities and the local community,” said Christina Grumstrup Sørensen, senior partner at CIP.
“They have all contributed to the successful completion of the project. We are delighted to see renewable power being generated based on locally sourced waste wood, and we look forward to a continued good cooperation with our project partners and the local community in the operations phase.”
The facility has a production capacity of 42MW, which according to CIP is sufficient enough to serve an estimated 78,000 homes and offset an annual 150,000 tons of CO2.
