The biomass CHP plant in Sandwich, Kent - South East corner of England - will supply heat and electricity to Discovery Park, one of Europe's leading science and technology parks. The plant will source its fuel predominantly from traditionally managed coppiced woodlands, stimulating the local forestry industry and improving traditionally managed forests.

The boiler is equipped with steam reheat and two turbines for higher efficiency.

  • Providing low cost carbon energy for Discovery Park
  • Up to 16MWe power and 11MWth heat. Enough to power 22,000 homes
  • Abundant local fuel - 430,000 acres of unmanaged woodland in South East England
  • Construction due to start Q1 2016
