Engie chosen to run energy-from-waste plant

A new 25 MW energy-from-waste plant in Hull, England is to be run by Engie (formerly GDF SUEZ), who have been chosen to operate the à‚£200m facility and purchase the green electricity it generates.

Engie will provide operational and maintenance expertise to run the new Energy Works plant as well as providing the power purchase agreement (PPA) that guarantees payments for electricity produced at the facility.
Hull-based engineering business Spencer Group is the developer of the Energy Works project. Construction began in January 2016 and the plant is due to be operational in early 2018.

It will be the first advanced gasification power plant to be supported by the Government’s Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme, introduced to stimulate investment in green energy developments.

ENGIE’s Operation and Maintenance contract will see 26 specialists deployed at the new plant from late 2017. They will manage the smooth running of the facility, from receiving the Refuse Derived Fuel and ensuring its suitability for gasification, through to maintaining all installed equipment and facilitating a consistent output of electricity. The plant will generate enough electricity to power 43,000 homes.
