Biomass CHP plant to power Scottish paper mill

The proposed plant will generate over half of the mill’s current electricity needs and all of its heat requirements from renewable sources. The investment will also create up to 10 new jobs at the Irvine site and secure a cost-efficient energy supply for Caledonian. Scotland’s Deputy First Minister, Nicol Stephen, welcomed the announcement which will also make a significant contribution towards the target of generating 18% of Scotland’s electricity requirements from renewable sources by 2010.

The Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. has purchased, from supplier FuelCell Energy, Inc., the four 250 kW ‘Direct FuelCell’ CHP plants that have been providing baseload electricity and heat to the brewery’s Californian production processes during initial operations through a power purchase agreement (PPA).
