CHP plant up and running

DSC00225 Announcement Date: 5th August 2015

The world’s first industrial scale CHP plant run on on fats, oils and greases has undergone a series of successful tests and been accredited under the Renewables Obligation. The giant 2-stroke marine diesel engine has generated renewable power for Thames Water and renewable heat for National Grid Gas. More testing is being carried out ahead of the plant becoming fully operational later this summer. Andrew Mercer, CEO of 2OC said “This is great news for the company and for the owners of the plant Beckton Energy Limited. To be able to provide renewable power for Europe’s biggest sewage works and the UK’s only desalination plant plus  the renewable heat needed to help deliver 40% of London’s gas, is a huge achievement.”
