Tilbury Biomass Power PlantTilbury, UK


The Tilbury Green Power (TGP) project comprises two separate phases of development: Phase 1 is a ca. 40 MW waste wood power plant; and Phase 2 is a ca. 20 MW Solid Recovered Fuel power plant.

Construction of Phase 1 commenced in August 2015 and will be completed in mid-2017. It will utilise around 270,000 tonnes of waste wood sourced from the region to produce up to 319,000 MWh of renewable electricity each year – enough to supply around 97,000 average homes.

The project will play a valuable role in contributing to the UK’s renewable energy targets, waste reduction targets and energy security objectives.

The 40 MW Tilbury Green Power facility is designed to be powered by approx. 285,000 tonnes of waste wood each year, and can handle wood material from e.g. construction sites. Due to the location close to London, the power plant will be given a function to reduce the amount of waste in the city. Up to 300 jobs will be created during the construction phase and nearly 50 permanent jobs in on-going operations.

The Danish based BWSC company was commissioned to develop the TLP project.

AccentHansen were initially commissioned to provide more than 50 steel fire and personnel doorsets to a number of the buildings on the Tilbury Green site. Both internal and external doors were supplied, with fire ratings up to 120mins and additional vision panels and over panels where appropriate.

Working closely with the developer to agree requirement, leading to doors being manufactured, delivered and installed on a site in a timely fashion. As time progressed, additional doors were requested and supplied to suit customer needs.

Installing the doors on site proved challenging, but working closely with the site management team enabled the job to be completed to time and budget. Bulk deliveries were received  on site, and doors were installed in batches as and when openings became available.
