Trecwn Biomass Plant Planning Approved
Renewable Developments Wales Ltd, in conjunction with The Valley Pembrokeshire Ltd, are pleased to announce that their planning application for a 25 Megawatt (MW) wood fuelled power station at Trecwn Valley was unanimously approved by Pembrokeshire County Council.
The power station will generate renewable energy from wood biomass, sourced from the wood waste and forestry industries. The plant will generate 25MW of electricity for export to the national grid together with a further 5MW of heat that will be available for use for heating or cooling by businesses within Trecwn Valley. The power station will employ up to 45 full time operational and maintenance staff as well as supporting service contractors over its +25 year operational life. Employment will peak at approximately 250 staff during the 30 month construction period.
Renewable Developments Wales and The Valley Pembrokeshire aim to re-establish Trecwn Valley as a major contributor to Pembrokeshire’s economy using renewable energy generation as a catalyst to attract other businesses to Trecwn Valley.
Huw Davies, owner and director of Renewable Developments Wales said ‘This planning approval represents the first crucial step in delivering our strategy for Trecwn Valley. I am delighted that we have been shown to have the support of the County Council and local people in our plans for transforming this unique site’.
