The new facility is the first in the UK to employ the GEM technology to produce “syngas” by use of pyrolysis. Pyrolysis involves heating the waste in the absence of air to produce a gaseous fuel, “syngas”. The gas is then used to drive a gas generate to deliver electricity to the national network.

The plant diverts 18,000 tonnes of Municipal Solid Waste (MWS) from landfill and provides 2.4MW of electricity and 1.8MW of heat output available for potential local utilisation.

EMCE were contracted to install the electrical, instrumentation and control systems for the project. The project required close attention to the design of the cable containment system to ensure co-ordination of the services within the compact building.

The project included the installation of a Variable Speed Drives (VSD), GAS detection and monitoring systems, DUETZ generator control equipment, fire alarm, small power and lighting.
