Multi-fuel CHP for Yorkshire proposed

Multi-fuel CHP for Yorkshire proposed
Plans to produce electricity and heat from a variety of fuels including biomass, fuel from waste and waste wood have been announced by Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE).

The utility firm is to consult on its plans for the 90 megawatt multi-fuel combined heat and power plant at its Ferrybridge facility in Yorkshire.

As well as producing electricity, the plant would generate heat for other nearby industrial facilities.

"SSE is always reviewing the potential of its generation facilities and believes a multi-fuel CHP plant will be an innovative addition to our generating portfolio," said Ferrybridge station manager Mick Gee.

"It will also contribute to the region's vision for more sustainable development, the government’s policy to increase security of supply and will provide employment opportunities both in construction and operation."

Meanwhile, the UK's largest power plant, Drax, has announced that its use of biomass for co-firing doubled in 2008 compared to the previous year.

While other coal-burning generators have been focusing on carbon capture and storage, Drax has cut its emissions by three per cent at its 4GW power plant by using biomass. It is also aiming to build three further co-firing plants.
