British government officials will be present at Wimmington, Cheshire in England next week for the launch of a £5.5m combined heat and power plant at the Tata Chemicals Europe facility.

The turbine will generate 12MW of electricity on an ongoing basis, equivalent to more than 100,000 MWhrs in a typical year.

The project has been backed by a 45 per cent grant from the Government (amounting to £2.47m), and has taken two years to complete.

The turbine takes high pressure steam from heat recovery boilers and reduces its pressure and temperature for use in Tata’s chemical plants, and in doing so produces electricity.

The company said generating this electricity means this volume of electricity doesn’t have to be generated elsewhere on the grid—saving 71,000 tonnes of CO2 in the UK.
