Earls Gate Energy Centre, Grangemouth

Posted on July 4, 2019

Client: Clugston Construction
Value: £2M
Dates: June 2019 to May 2020

Kilmac have been awarded the sub-contract by Clugston Construction to deliver ground works to the new £210 million Earls Gate Energy from Waste (EfW) centre in Grangemouth.

Besides providing a high-quality residual waste solution built using the best available proven technology in the world, the heat and power generated by the plant will be used to support four different chemical operators in the Earls Gate site.  The plant will be replacing an old gas fired plant.  The heat and power off-take will make the Earls Gate plant one of the most efficient in the UK, helping to drive the shift from fossil fuels to heat and electricity from renewable sources.  When complete in 2021 the Earls Gate Energy Centre (EGEC) will convert 216,000 tonnes of waste, the equivalent of around 20 per cent of Scotland’s total landfilled household waste, into energy, producing 79 gigawatt hours (GWh) of green electricity and 81GWh of heat in the form of steam each year.  EGEC will become a source of green, low cost energy for businesses located in the area such as chemical manufacturer and site service provider CalaChem, which has entered into a long term energy supply agreement for the offtake of electricity and steam produced by the facility.
