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.
