Tamar Energy builds its first three AD plants

It expects these to be treating more than 100,000 tonnes of organic waste and generating 6MW of electricity by early 2014.

Tamar Energy has finished building its first three anaerobic digestion (AD) plants. All three use combined heat and power (CHP) to collectively produce six megawatts of renewable electricity. UK distributor Clarke Energy agreed to supply Tamar with six CHP engines manufactured by GE in Austria in July.

The 3MWe plant at Sutton Grange Farm near Retford in Nottinghamshire is the largest of the finished projects. It will consume 45,000 tonnes per year of maize, crop wastes and pig slurry.
