RWE npower cogen revises CHP contract with printers

RWE npower cogen limited, the combined heat and power division of RWE npower has announced a new agreement for the supply of energy to Aylesford’s Newsprint, Kent, England.

Since 1993 npower Cogen has been supplying steam and electricity through a highly efficient CHP plant on the paper mill site. During that time, npower has invested around £60m ($96.8m) into the site and maintains the plant with a dedicated team of engineers.

Mindful of the ongoing economic conditions, RWE npower has worked flexibly with the paper mill owners to agree a revised energy supply contract which offers a better and more secure outlook for all parties through a structure covering the next four years.

Fraser Blunt
, Head of Cogen & Generation Services, said; 'I'm pleased to continue to work in partnership with Aylesford. This revised contract gives confidence to all parties for at least the next four years, and shows the benefits of combined heat and power plants for the UK economy. '

Combined heat & power provides multiple benefits for business, combining lower carbon emissions with affordability and reliability. I would urge the Government to ensure energy policy reforms do not let CHP become the forgotten technology of Britain's economy.'
