Grangemouth biomass plant wins approval
June 4 2013
Designed by Gordon Murray Architects (since merged with Ryder Architecture) the plant will generate up to 120MW of renewable electricity and uses the dimension of a standard cargo container as a base module for the build.
To reduce the visual impact of the boiler house upper levels will be realised as a ‘translucent, sculptural object’ to contrast with the solid element below.
Energy Minister Fergus Ewing said: “In consenting this application I have put in place a series of conditions to protect local residents from inconvenience, safeguard the appearance of the area, and protect the environment and air quality. The conditions to the consent also ensure that the fuel used in the biomass is from sustainable and responsible sources.”
Forth Energy is simultaneously progressing plans for similar plants in Dundee and Rosyth.
