Renewable Energy Systems to build 100-megawatt biomass power plant in Blyth UK

British renewable energy developer, Renewable Energy Systems (RES), was selected on May 7 by the Port of Blyth as the preferred developer to build a 100-megawatt (MW) biomass power plant in Blyth, Northumberland, UK.

The biomass plant is part of the North East region, which will be the hub of England’s goal of sourcing 20% of its electricity requirements from renewable energy by 2020. The planned biomass plant will provide the entire electricity requirement of about 150,000 British homes a year. It will also save about 300,000 metric tons of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere that would otherwise be generated by conventional means. The biomass plant will be using feedstock such as forestry residues, sawmill co-products, and recycled wood, and perhaps even energy crops. Wood waste and energy crops as feedstock are carbon neutral, since they absorb CO2 during their growth cycle.

The Port of Blyth handles over one million metric tons of cargo annually, and is home to Nartec, the UK’s premier renewable energy research facility. Nartec has a pier-based wind farm and was the site of the UK’s first installed offshore wind turbines. The Port of Blyth has also served as a port of entry for onshore wind turbines being installed throughout the northern UK.

Renewable Energy Systems (RES) is one of the leading renewable energy developers in the world. It has been involved in wind energy development since the 1970s, and has nearly four gigawatts (1 gigawatt= 1000 megawatts) of wind energy installed worldwide. RES’ international subsidiaries are RES Americas (US and Canada), RES Mediterranean, RES Australia, RES New Zealand, Nordisk Vinkraft (Scandinavia). RES is part of the Sir Robert McAlpine group, a family-owned British firm with over 100 years of experience in construction and engineering. RES Holdings Limited’s registered office is in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire, England.
