MARTIN to supply grates to Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant
Germany-based energy and environmental technology provider MARTIN GmbH für Umwelt- und Energietechnik (MARTIN) has recently announced that it has been selected by CNIM to supply two reverse-acting grates to the Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant (LSEP) in the UK.
The Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant (LSEP) is a 90 MWe energy-from-waste (EfW) facility located at Tata Chemicals Europe’s Lostock Works site in Northwich, and will recover energy, cleanly and safely, from approximately 600 000 tonnes of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) – the residual waste left over after reusable and recyclable material has been removed.
LSEP is a joint venture of investment firm Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and the operator, FCC Environment, and is being built by CNIM. MARTIN will supply two reverse-acting grates Vario, each with 5 runs and a throughput of 45.5 tonnes per hour. The equipment supplied will include the combustion control system with an infrared camera (MICC).
Scheduled for startup in 2023, the plant will provide power to the grid and provide heat and process steam to the neighbouring industrial premises.
