Welsh plant set for auction

A recycling facility in south Wales is to be auctioned by a local authority, which says the plant is surplus to requirements.

Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council has invited viewings from potential buyers of its facility on Pengarnddu Industrial Estate ahead of a planned online auction in March.

Property firm Lambert Smith Hampton is auctioning the lot, which includes a biomass gasification combined heat and power (CHP) plant, with a guide price of £10,000.

The plant has an output of 1,000KWe incorporating two CHP engines and generators, but it is understood not to have been in operation for at least two years.

When operating, the site has a permit to store up to 500 tonnes of waste and accreditation under the renewable obligations scheme.

It will be sold on the basis of a three-year lease with obligations on the buyer to remediate the site, with an option to acquire the freehold for £1 once the remediation works have been completed.

Viewing is on 6 February and the auction will run from 1-2 March. More information can be found at:
