FLI Energy completes construction of Tamar Energy’s Basingstoke Anaerobic Digestion Facility

Tuesday, Dec 10, 2013

FLI Energy, leading AD plant EPC contractor, has announced today that it has completed construction of the Tamar Energy’s Basingstoke Anaerobic Digestion Facility, and delivered the project to its client a month ahead of schedule. The AD plant and entire site infrastructure was designed and constructed by FLI Energy on a turn-key basis to generate 1.5 MW of renewable energy.

The Basingstoke Anaerobic Digestion Facility will take in approximately 30,000 tonnes of food waste per year, waste that could otherwise end up in landfill. This organic material is energy rich and contains valuable nutrients. The facility will produce 1.5 MW of renewable energy, enough to power more than 3,000 homes, and additionally will produce a nutrient rich fertilizer which will be returned to estate lands.

The AD facility is located close to the M3, in Hampshire. Formed in February 2012, Tamar Energy is a renewable energy development and operation company, which received £97 million in initial financial backing from investors to build a network of 40 Anaerobic Digestion plants in strategic locations around the UK by 2018. The Basingstoke Anaerobic Digestion Facility is the first one of those projects to achieve construction completion.

Alan Lovell, Tamar Energy’s Chairman and Chief Executive said:  “The completion of construction of our first plant is a significant milestone for Tamar Energy. The project teams of both FLI Energy and Tamar Energy have done a fantastic job. A truly collaborative approach has delivered a complex project to time and to budget and all parties are very proud of the achievement.”

As one of the UK’s leading EPC contractors and technology providers in the biogas renewable energy sector, FLI Energy provided Tamar Energy with a ‘full turnkey’ design and construction of the entire facility, from demolition and enabling works to prepare the site; through to the HoSt digestion technology, reception building construction, feedstock pre-treatment and the commissioning and operator training.

FLI Energy’s Managing Director Declan McGrath commented: “I am proud to have participated in this great project, and we are looking forward to continued collaboration replicating this success on the delivery of many more AD projects, as part of Tamar’s plan to roll-out a national network of plants.”
