Lincolnshire renewable energy plant nears completion

Posted on by in News

nSleafordJul13Steelwork has played a leading role in the construction of a straw fired power plant in Sleaford, Lincolnshire that is set to go online before the end of the year.

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.
