A US-based renewable energy company has acquired a £165m biomass plant.
Pacific Green Technologies (PGTK) has acquired, through the purchase of Pacific Green Energy Parks, the planning permission to develop a 49MWe biomass facility at Sutton Bridge, Lincolnshire, UK.
Pacific Green Energy Parks is the lone stakeholder of Energy Park Sutton Bridge (EPSB) which owns the planning permission.
EPSB managing director Chris Williams said: “We are very pleased to be the first step within PGTK’s strategy to build a dedicated Biomass and Waste to Energy Power Plant Development Group.”
The developer is planning to use ENVI-PureTM Emission Control System for removal of harmful gases and pollutants generated by the plant. The marketing rights of this control system are held by PGTK.
