Building begins on Norfolk biomass plant

A mid-sized dedicated biomass plant in Norfolk will be guaranteed subsidy support under the government’s Renewables Obligation scheme

Building work has started on a 44-megawatt biomass electricity plant in Snetterton, Norfolk.

The mid-sized straw-burning power station is scheduled for completion in summer 2017 and will be operated by Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor (BWSC).

It gained planning consent from Breckland council in 2012 and will burn surplus straw supplied to BWSC by local farmers.

The plant is expected to support 36 full-time jobs and provide a further 50 fuel transportation jobs once it is up and running.
