Construction of a 6.5 MW biomass CHP plant.

On 25th September 2015, the Green Investment Bank (GIB) and Equitix announced a commitment to fund the construction of a £30 million biomass energy facility in Widmerpool, near Nottingham.

The Equitix managed fund Energy Savings Investments (ESI), in which GIB is a cornerstone investor, is investing £14.6 million in the project. An additional £15 million of private capital has been mobilised from the Equitix Energy Efficiency Fund (EEEF).

The plant was developed by Mycock Associates with support from Pinnacle Power. It will generate up to 6.5 MW of green electricity and will be built as a combined heat and power (CHP) plant with the potential to supply heat to a co-located wood drying facility.

The new plant will recycle around 52,000 tonnes of waste wood as a carbon neutral fuel and will annually save around 8,400 tonnes of CO2 emissions, the equivalent of taking 3,750 cars off the road for the life of the project.

A joint venture between STC Power and Pensotti Fabrica Caldaie Legano will act as the engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) principal contractor. The biomass boiler and flue gas cleaning systems will be supplied by Pensotti Fabrica Caldaie Legano which will also supply the clean electricity generation equipment.

Once operational, the plant will sell electricity to GDF Suez UK under a long-term power off-take agreement.

On 11th December 2015, Veolia announced that it had secured a £50 million contract from Equitix ESI CHP to operate the facility for 20 years. Under the contract, Veolia Energy Services will provide operation and maintenance on a 24/7 basis and will deliver monitoring, reporting and compliance services. The agreement also covers water treatment, emission monitoring and ash disposal for the new plant.

Veolia had planned for the plant to start generating renewable electricity and heat in spring 2017, but, in November 2017, Equitix advised AcuComm that the site is not yet operational due to technical and commercial issues.
