Tamar Energy: Four more anaerobic digestion sites in pipeline

Renewable energy company Tamar Energy has announced it has four anaerobic digestion (AD) plants in development in “the next wave of facilities”, and it is on a drive to recruit more staff as a result.

Work continues on four Tamar Energy plants at Farleigh, Holbeach Hurn, Retford and Halstead, which constitute Tamar’s first push to create a network of around 40 new anaerobic digestion (AD) plants by 2018, as MRW reported in June.

Planning permission has now been granted for a 2MW plant with a capacity of around 46,000 tonnes per year at Bromley, Greater London, and also for a 3MW plant, processing industrial and food waste at Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, which will be operational from late 2014.

Planning applications have been submitted for: A 2MW plant with a capacity of around 46,000 tonnes per year at Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester, and also for a 3MW site with a capacity of 70,000 tonnes per year.

Tamar said that all the sites will be producing electricity by late 2014, provided that all applications are granted. The firm is recruiting plant managers, maintenance engineers and operators to handle the prospective sites.

Alan Lovell, Tamar Energy chairman and chief executive, said: “Today’s announcement of the plans for the next wave of facilities marks another milestone in Tamar Energy’s vision to develop a flexible, wide reaching AD network to create renewable energy from the cost-effective, sustainable treatment of organic waste.”
