Builder named for Scotland's first gas-to-grid AD plant

Contractor MT-Energie UK has been appointed by Keithick Biogas to build Scotland’s first gas-to-grid anaerobic digestion plant.

The project, near Coupar, is due to become operational this year and to feed three million cubic metres biomethane - equivalent to 1.8mw - into the gas grid annually. It will also produce a fertiliser for local farms.

MT-Energie national sales manager Ben Donaldson said: “This project will demonstrate that advanced technologies are available and can provide significant benefits to the local community.”

MT-Energie has built similar plants in Germany (pictured above).

The project is a partnership between agricultural firm Keithick Farms, financier Iona Capital and Scotia Gas Networks.

The Department for Energy and Climate Change has launched a review of the tariff for injecting biomethane into the grid after concerns about a risk of overcompensation for large plants or sites with existing assets.
