Stobart’s Biomass division has won a £75m contract to supply fuel to the Evermore Renewable Energy Plant, a 15.8 MWe recycled wood fuelled combined heat and power station to be constructed in Derry/Londonderry.
Work on the CHP plant will start in the coming weeks and it is expected to become fully operational by summer 2015. Stobart Biomass will supply the plant with over 115,000 tonnes of recycled wood per annum and is contracted to supply fuel for 15 years from the commencement date.
Stobart CEO Andrew Tinkler said: “Stobart Biomass is seeing increased demand for its range of products across the UK and is pleased to support Evermore with this key development in Derry/Londonderry. Stobart Biomass has an extensive pipeline of opportunities. We look forward to helping plant developers and funders to bring those opportunities to fruition and growing our Biomass business.”
