Peter Brotherhood build turbine for Welsh waste-to-energy plant

The Peter Brotherhood turbine built for the Welsh waste-to-energy plant.

Environmental engineering company Peter Brotherhood Ltd has built a steam turbine worth almost 1 million to be installed in a 7 million waste-to-energy plant being built at Crymlyn Burrows near Neath in South Wales.

The 4.5 MW turbine will produce electricity to power local council buildings and street lights using fuel derived from domestic and commercial refuse.

The waste-fuelled power station is part of a 32 million integrated waste treatment plant, which will also include recycling and composting, that is being developed by project company HLC (Neath Port Talbot) Ltd.

Mixed municipal wastes from local homes and business will enter the treatment plant and be separated into various streams for recycling, composting or processing into fuel.

The refuse-derived fuel will comprise mostly low-grade paper, wood and plastics - about 30 per cent by weight of the mixed waste stream that enters the plant. Almost half of the 4.5 MW of electricity generated will be used to power the facility itself and the balance will be used by Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council in council buildings, street lighting, etc.

The contract with Peter Brotherhood has been placed by Nifes Energy, one of a number of specialist equipment suppliers and contractors involved in building the plant. The turbine will be commissioned early in 2002 and the plant is expected to be operational by the summer.
