GE Oil & Gas, Nuovo Pignone

Friday, July 6th, 2012

RR Projects have completed the installation of the Power generation unit for GE Oil & Gas, Nuovo Pignone at the Iggesund Paper Mill in Workington, Cumbria, England. This new facility is a Biomass Combined Heat and Power Plant, set on the existing Workington Mill site.

This CHP Plant will generate, nominally, between 43 and 49.9 MW of renewable electricity using 550,000 tonnes of biomass annually. This will meet all of the Mill’s electrical requirements, as well as providing heat for use in the board making process. Any surplus electricity will be exported to the national grid via an existing on-site electrical connection.

RR Projects are pleased to have been contracted to perform the complete Turn-key installation for the generating set and associated BOP.
