Anesco helps power up Dorset renewable power station
It is the third time Anesco has been appointed to work with renewable power generation company, Farm Power, who commissioned the project.
In just four weeks Anesco has installed and powered up a total of 1,076 solar panels on farmland at a site in Piddlehinton, Dorset.
Covering almost two acres of land, the ‘green’ power station can generate up to 250 kilowatts of energy, and will generate around 250,000 units (kilowatt hours) per year - the equivalent of the power used by 100 UK households in the same period.
All power generated is to be delivered and used by the nearby Bourne Park Industrial Estate.
A majority of the electricity will power a large new anaerobic digestion facility, a second form of renewable energy located at the site. The system breaks down organic materials, such as manure, to generate a biogas which is then used to power all the businesses at the site.
Mark Simon, managing director of Farm Power, commented: “The project at Bourne Park is the perfect example of how a blend of renewable technologies can be effectively used together.
“I am very pleased to have worked with Anesco on this project. They have once again demonstrated their effectiveness and efficiency in developing renewable energy projects, while also delivering on time and budget. This has been a very successful installation and I look forward to working them on other opportunities in the future.”
Adrian Pike, CEO of Anesco, said: “Working in partnership with Farm Power we have been able to make radical changes to how Bourne Park uses energy, by creating sustainable solutions for the future, which is a great achievement and one we’re very proud of.”
Anesco works with local authorities, businesses and homeowners looking to reduce their carbon emissions. The firm provides organisation with a comprehensive energy service, from audits through to recommendations, installations and capital funding plans.
