Padd Energy Advises on Major New Waste Wood CHP Plant
Padd Energy has been advising the global corporation behind a major new waste wood combined heat and power plant in the Midlands.
The 4.8MW waste wood burning biomass plant in Wellingborough will process thousands of tonnes of waste material a year that would otherwise have gone to landfill, converting it into electricity for homes and businesses.
Chris Paddey, MD of Padd Energy, said his company had advised on the Renewables Obligation Certificate (ROCs) application for the plant and was currently managing all technical aspects of the scheme relating to its construction and commissioning.
“We have been able to use our experience in the renewable energy and waste to energy sector to ensure the owner meets their obligations and we have worked closely with all stakeholders to prepare the project for construction and commissioning,” said Chris.
“Moving forward we are looking forward to providing further specialist consultancy support for this exciting and innovative waste wood scheme.”
Danny Kim, UK MD of Hyosung Corporation, the company behind the scheme, said: “Padd Energy’s expertise in managing major energy projects has been invaluable in helping us foresee any potential issues and develop a strategic approach.
“Chris’s engineering background and his deep understanding of the renewable energy sector in the UK, including the complex regulatory landscape surrounding it, have enabled us to better understand how to deliver the project.”
Padd Energy will be continuing to work with Hyosung Corporation as an advisor on the project as the scheme progresses from design to build, offering strategic consultancy and legislative expertise.
