Markinch Biomass CHP

This state of the art power plant will have an installed capacity of up to 65 MW and will be able to supply up to 120 tonnes of industrial steam per hour to paper manufacturer Tullis Russell. The plant will be the largest of its type in Scotland and in Great Britain as a whole. Overall, RWE Innogy is investing some £200 million in the construction of this biomass CHP plant. The new biomass CHP plant will be fuelled by approximately 90% recovered wood waste and approximately 10% virgin wood sourced from sustainably managed forests and will significantly reduce carbon emissions. To-date, the paper mill has been supplied with energy by a 60-year old coal-fired power station. ROCKWOOL TECHNICAL INSULATION supplies ProRox Pipe Section insulation for the Pipework in the plant.
