Lincolnshire renewable energy plant nears completion
The facility will burn bales of straw and woodchip to produce enough electricity for 65,000 homes. Ash from the processes will be recycled into agricultural fertiliser.
Caunton Engineering has erected approximately 1,600t of steel for the project, as well as stair towers, ladders, platforms, metal flooring and more than 1km of handrails.
The entire facility, owned by EC02 Lincs, is based around a series of predominantly steel framed buildings. These include two straw barns, a turbine hall, boiler house, flue gas area, straw conveyor and an office unit.
