Widmerpool Biomass plant

Robinson Structures are proud to be working with Alpha Construction on the Widerpool Biomass plant. This is an exciting project which will see us delivering all the steelwork for the portal frame structure that will house all the biomass equipment.

We will be erecting a 170 tonne, 20 metre high portal frame structure, complete with mezzanine floors that cover multi million pounds worth of waste to energy plant and equipment.

We will be returning back to the site today, Monday 25th July to complete the steel structure.

Widmerpool Biomass plant, Notinghamshire is an innovative project. The wood-fuelled biomass plant will be in a new 1,500 square-metre (16,145.87 square feet) industrial building that will be powered by waste wood from the sawmill and other chippings collected from within ten miles of the site. It is estimated that the plant will be fuelled by up to 24,000 tonnes of waste wood a year.

The combined heat and power station is designed to provide sustainable green electricity for over 10,000 homes. By redirecting waste wood, otherwise destined for landfill, the plant will save 8,400 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. An equivalent reduction to taking 3,750 cars off the road over the life of the project.

Alpha Construction Ltd is a civil engineering and building contractor, formed in 1982. This is our first project working with them and we are really proud of the work completed so far. For more information on Alpha Construction visit: www.alphaconstruction.co.uk
