Inauguration of Snetterton Renewable Energy Plant


On 14 September, BWSC was a proud participant at the inauguration of the Snetterton Renewable Energy Plant; a joint venture between BWSC, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and PensionDanmark.

BWSC completed construction of the plant four weeks ahead of schedule, and the plant has been in operation since April. The local media have commented positivly on the subsequent developments the plant has brought to the area. During its two-year construction period, 350 people were employed - many of which were sourced through local contractors. There are now 31 permanent jobs at the site. The plant saves more than 300,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year through the burning of straw and woodchips and generates enough electricity to supply 82,000 UK homes. Click on the picture below to take a closer look at this impressive renewable energy plant!
