MT-Energie scores AD double
Contracts to extend operational sites in Hampshire, West Yorkshire
Anaerobic digestion plant specialist MT-Energie UK is to extend two operational sites in England.
The projects are sited on the Apsley Estate in Andover, Hampshire, and Clayton Hall Farm near Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
In both cases MT-Energie will build and integrate additional digesters, in some cases replacing components supplied by the previous technology supplier.
The 500kW AD plant on the Apsley Estate, which started operations in 2012, will be scaled up to a total output of 1100kWe and 2000 m3/h raw biogas while the 400kW AD plant in Yorkshire will reach production of 1000kWe.
The aim at Apsley Farm is to integrate electricity production with gas-to-grid generation, accessing the Renewable Heat Incentive biomethane tariff.
MT-Energie national sales manager Ben Donaldson said: “These are the most recent expansion projects we are undertaking, however we have received more and more requests from existing AD operators for extension or re-powering solutions which will reduce parasitic loads and plant downtime.”
