Blackburn Meadows Renewable Energy Plant Boiler Island control contract for Capula Limited
16 Jul 2012
We are delighted to announce Capula has successfully won a contract with ANDRITZ Energy & Environment GmbH to provide the control solution for the Boiler Island at E.ON’s Blackburn Meadows Biomass Renewable Energy Plant near Sheffield.
The 30MW (electrical output) renewable energy plant will produce enough power for around 40,000 homes by converting recycled waste wood into electricity. The plant will also displace the emissions of around 80,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year, the equivalent of taking more than 20,000 cars off the UK's roads each year, by burning carbon neutral fuel in place of traditional fossil fuels like coal and gas.
Capula’s solution at the new build power station involves multi-disciplines and will see us implement a Siemens PCS7 DCS system for controlling the entire plant, a safety system, low voltage switchgear and variable speed drives, standby diesel generator and UPS systems. In addition, Capula will have electrical cable design responsibility for all related cabling, along with lighting and small power design.
“We are really thrilled to have won this important contract with ANDRITZ Energy & Environment GmbH,” said Phil Willett, Business Sector Head for Power & Renewables at Capula, “Blackburn Meadows Renewable Energy Plant is a landmark project for the industry and will give Capula an excellent reference site for future business development as the UK continues to incorporate renewables in its energy strategy.”
