Anaerobic digestion (AD) plants Attleborough Eco Electric, Ellough AD and Holton Renewable Power will be taken over by Eco Verde Energy (EVE) from 1 December 2020.
Chris Brown, operations director at the specialist AD operations and advisory company, explains EVE is taking over the contracts from the current operator.
“We’re very pleased to be bringing these three plants into the EVE portfolio. Once we take over their operations later this year, the combined output from EVE-operated plants will be at least 23MW, which includes both gas and electricity,” says Mr Brown.
“In addition, we are undertaking an expansion project at Attleborough, to enable it to produce biogas for the grid, as well as electricity, with the view to supply the local town of Attleborough with gas for the majority of the 4,000 homes.”
The plants in Attleborough and Ellough are owned by Privilege Investments Limited, which is also co-owner of Holton. Chris Winward, a director of the company, explains they are excited to be entering the new strategic partnership.
“Our operations, service and back office teams will use their extensive skills and experience to deliver process improvements and optimise outputs from the plants.
“EVE has an incredibly compelling offering across advisory, operations and back office support, and the optimisation of operations should enable increased generation of renewable energy by all of the plants. This will help offset demand for non-renewable alternatives, contributing towards the imperative movement to net zero emissions.” For further information on EVE visit https://www.ecoverde.energy/
