Sleaford Renewable Energy Project
The power plant’s proven technology is designed for the clean and efficient combustion of straw, the by-product of wheat production, secured mainly from farms within a 30-mile radius of Sleaford. Ash produced by the plant will be recycled as crop fertiliser.
As well as generating electricity, the surplus heat generated by the plant will be harnessed and used for heating Sleaford’s public swimming pool and indoor bowling centre, the town’s football club and, subject to planning consent, provide surplus heat to North Kesteven District Council’s office in the town. By using the surplus heat, the plant’s efficiency is increased.
The plant is a multi-million pound investment for the local economy, creating up to 250 jobs during construction and 80 during commercial operation. The 38MW plant will be operational by 2014. It will generate enough electricity to power 65,000 homes saving 150,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
