Padd commissioned for 6MW biomass gasification plant

Padd Energy is currently working on a number of commissions for a London-based
investment services group behind a 6MW biomass gasification plant.

Biomass gasification is regarded as an important element of the UK’s strategy for achieving
low-carbon targets.

The biomass gasification process converts biomass fuel into syngas by reacting the material
at high temperature, without combustion, with a controlled amount of oxygen. The syngas
can be used to produce electricity and heat.

Gasification is an alternative to traditional combustion plants and generates more efficient
electricity, with higher yields of power from smaller amounts of fuel input.

This is a major 6MW project and we are delighted to be involved. We have undertaken
various exercises on the project and reported on suitability against UK power plant
legislation, providing detailed studies on various elements of the plant.

This level of power engineering consultancy lies within our core expertise and we are
looking forward to providing ongoing support to the owners of the project as the scheme
pushes ahead.
