Feasibility on board for renewable energy scheme with Sycamore Planning

28 September 2018 / 10:04

We are providing Project Co-ordination, Employer’s Agent and Cost Consultancy services for Sycamore Planning Limited, which has submitted an application for a Biomass CHP and Waste Water Treatment Plant in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

If approved, the facility will have the capacity to process up to 48,000 tonnes of Grade B & C wood waste per annum, which will arrive at the site pre-shredded, and approximately 65,000 tonnes of waste water per annum, which will be primarily landfill leachate.

The Biomass CHP and Waste Water Treatment Plant will generate 1.5MW of electricity and 16.8MW thermal energy (heat). It is estimated that 1.2MW of electricity will be exported to the National Grid whilst 0.3MW will be retained to power the site operations.

Tim Payton, Director and co-founder of Feasibility, comments: “The proposed plants will be operated alongside an existing Material Recovery Facility (MRF) and landfill sites, so our support work on this scheme includes consideration of the current activity as well as the local area. Renewable energy is vitally important so we’re looking forward to a positive decision for the client ahead of the team getting on site.”
