Forth Ports plan huge Leith Docks biomass plant
February 10 2010
The £360m proposal would take advantage of the dock system to ship in up to a million tonnes of biomass material annually.
This would generate up to 200 megawatts of electricity, meeting most of Edinburgh’s energy needs.
Outline plans would see a 300ft flue; boiler house, steam turbine and storage area erected at Imperial Dock and will necessitate relocation of a planned public park.
These outline details will inform a public consultation in advance of an application to the Scottish Government for approval.
Forth Energy have plans for three other stations at Dundee, Rosyth and Grangemouth in a £1.7bn plan to generate up to 5,000MW of renewable energy.
