Second renewable energy centre for Lincolnshire
Steelwork contractor Caunton Engineering is erecting its second renewable energy centre in Lincolnshire working on behalf of Burmeister and Wain Scandinavian Contractor (BWSC).
The two companies previously worked on a similar project in Sleaford (see NSC Sept/Oct 2013), where more than 1,600t of steel was erected.
The £90M Brigg project, based on the town’s former British Sugar works, will generate renewable electricity using straw and woodchip as a sustainable fuel source.
Caunton is fabricating, supplying and erecting 1,300t of structural steelwork for a boiler house, turbine hall, office building, two straw barns, a straw conveyor and wood chip storage buildings.
The Brigg facility will generate 40MW of power on a continuous basis, equivalent to the needs of every home in North Lincolnshire.
