We have won our third major contract for a biomass facility in the UK: a 40MWe waste wood biomass plant in Teesside including 15 years of operation and maintenance. 

We have signed a contract for the delivery, operation and maintenance of a third major biomass facility, located in Teesside near Middlesbrough, on behalf of Glennmont Partners. 

The biomass facility will be capable of using waste wood as fuel and will be generating 40MW of renewable energy.

The 40MWe scheme follows on from the biomass projects at Margam, Port Talbot in South Wales, signed in January 2015, and the Templeborough project in Rotherham, signed in March 2015. These schemes, when operational, will contribute 120MW of renewable energy in support of the growing need to develop and provide renewable energy in the UK.

The Teesside project will bring inward investment and jobs to the area, and working with its consortium partner, Lagan Construction Group Ltd., construction of the facility will commence almost immediately, with a targeted completion in the first quarter of 2018. During the construction phase, a significant amount of people will be employed on site, benefiting the local economy. 

This is our third major announcement in 2015, and continues our expansion into the UK market. Back in December 2014 we signed a contract to build Viridor’s 300k tonne per annum waste-to-energy facility in Dunbar, Scotland.
