Wood pellet plant to break ground in July 2011
In Scotland, UK, a wood pellet production plant is being developed that, when operational in March 2012, will produce wood pellets.
Land Energy is behind the project, which will come to realisation on a site previously occupied by a textile factory. Work at the site is scheduled to get underway in July 2011.
Based in Belfast, Ireland, Lagen Construction will be responsible for the civil, structural and building works, including the refurbishment of three existing buildings.
Saxlund will install the biomass CHP system, which includes a 12.5 MWth wet wood combustion plant for the production of thermal oil. It comes complete with fuel and ash handling systems.
The timber-based wood pellets produced at the plant will burn to generate enough electricity to power 15,000 homes.
