Energy-from-waste CHP plant nears completion

A combined heat and power energy-from-waste plant in Plymouth, UK is close to completion and is scheduled to come online in early 2015, says its owner, waste disposal firm MVV Environment.

“Construction is proceeding well, all the major elements of the plant are now installed, and we are looking to begin commissioning of the site at the end of 2014 and leading it into operations in early 2015,” said Paul Carey, managing director of UK operations, in an interview with recycling news site letsrecycle.

In processing 245,000 tonnes of waste per year, the plant will generate 24 MW of power and steam for the nearby Naval Dockyard under a 25-year contract with its owner, the Ministry of Defence.

A district heating scheme for homes close to the plant is also reportedly under discussion.
