Clarke Energy to deliver landfill gas power plant

Clarke Energy has signed a contract with Bord na Móna to deliver a landfill gas power plant at the Drehid Landfill site in the Republic of Ireland.

Knowsley-based Clarke Energy say that up to 25 jobs will be supported during the plant’s construction and three-to-four permanent positions for the site’s ongoing operations.

The project will utilise landfill gas produced from the decomposition of waste in the landfill site to produce 5.6MW of renewable electricity.

The project will utilise four of GE Power & Water’s containerised Jenbacher 420 gas engines each rated at 1.4MW electrical output to deliver 5.6MW of renewable power.
