ESP has undertaken proof of concept reporting for the proposed biomass drying facility at Stillington in County Durham. The scheme has been developed in response to a growing demand for biomass products and utilises steam from a 5MW biomass CHP scheme to provide a biomass drying facility which will produce high quality wood chip at 20% MC for use within local biomass boilers. The electricity produced through a steam turbine on the site will export power to national grid and will attract renewable obligation certificates. The scheme will also enable local producers of wood chip to use the facility to dry their own products, such as round wood and straw. The scheme is expected to create local employment and will provide a regional resource of good quality wood chip, which will enable the expansion of the biomass heat market both within the public and private sectors.
ESP is an accredited installer, approved under the Government’s Micro-generation Certification Scheme.
