CoGen’s 26.5MWe RDF advanced waste gasification treatment facility on an industrial site at Hooton Park in Hooton, Cheshire, is reported to have moved a step closer to the start of construction with the signing of the feedstock agreement with Dutch alternative fuel supplier N+P Group.

As part of a 15-year agreement, the N+P Group will supply refuse derived fuel (RDF) to all CoGen’s portfolio of projects with this contract expected to see 240,000tpa of municipal waste sourced from the local community for the Hooton project.

According to CoGEn, its Hooton site is fully permitted for an energy from waste plant, has secured a grid access agreement and will use fluidised bed advanced gasification technology.

Construction on the project is anticipated to start later this year and, once operational in 2020, is expected to provide enough energy to the grid to power 50,000 homes for the next 20 years.

Chief executive of CoGen, Ian Brooking, said: “CoGen has a significant pipeline of projects coming through. This will be the first of a number of CoGen EfW plants to which N+P will be the feedstock supplier.”

CoGen said its £135m Hooton Bio Power plant will use advanced conversion technology to process up to 240,000tpa per year of RDF.
