Plans for a biomass energy plant in Stockton that would burn around 325,000 tonnes of waste wood per annum have been submitted by renewable energy company, Port Clarence Energy Limited.
Port Clarence Energy Limited – a partnership between Eco2 Limited and Temporis Capital LLP – will design and operate the 45MW plant and was created especially for this project. The development would be based around three main buildings comprising the turbine hall and boiler house, a fuel reception area and a fuel storage barn.
In information provided at a public consultation on the propped plant, Eco2 explained that “The fuel will mainly be sourced from areas to the south of the site and will be drawn from a variety of sources including construction and demolition sites, municipal collections, civic amenity sites and packaging.” It added that there would be an expected 50 deliveries per day to the site.
It hopes construction will commence at the start of 2015 and is expected to take 30 months to complete.
