Site Location

The plant owner Eco 2 Linc Ltd has decided to built a biomass fired renewable energy plant primary for the production of electricity.

The primary contractors of the plant is the consortium of BWE and BWSC, two independent companies situated in Denmark, just north of Copenhagen.

Overall project

The energy plant Sleaford is a new constructed renewable energy unit to be build in the UK. The plant is 100% biomass fired (natural gas is used for start-up), mostly straw, and produces approx. 40 MW electricity. The combustion technology is based on a water cooled vibration grate. See more on http://www.sleafordrep.co.uk

Straw is delivered as bales and the plant is able to receive Hesston bales, New Holland bales and Claas bales. Wood chips is used as auxiliary fuel.

The plant shall be designed for continuous operation at base load apart from one annual shutdown for repair, statutory inspection and repair

A centrally and fully equipped first aid facility will be located on the site.

Local/Site Conditions

The site is located just East of the town of Sleaford on the Boston road from the junction on A17.
