Official Opening of The Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant (REP) in Lincolnshire, UK


 

On Friday the 28 of November the Energy and Climate Change Minister Baroness Verma officially opened the Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant. 

The Sleaford (REP) that entered commercial operation in September, is a straw-fired biomass plant with a net output of 38.5 MWe developed by ECO2 and owned by Glennmont Partners. BWE has supplied the complete boiler island while BWSC has supplied the balance of plant. The plant is generating enough electricity to power 65,000 homes using sustainable fuel sources, while saving 240,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. The plant harnesses energy from the combustion of straw, secured mainly from farms within a 50-mile radius of Sleaford.

Present at the opening were also local officials and members of North Kesteven District Council. The ceremony included Minister’s Lunch and BBC & ITV TV interviews & local press.

Participating from BWE: Chairman Carlo Trifone, CEO Michele Passini, Project Director Per Steemann Nielsen, Project Engineer Brian Rømer, Site Manager Mads Thomsen and Commissioning Supervisor Poul Kellberg.
