Bd online: Ryder Architecture gets go-ahead for biomass plant24/06/2013
Scheme to finish in 2017
Ryder Architecture has been given the go-ahead for what will be the largest biomass power plant in Scotland.
Based at the Port of Grangemouth, the plant is a combined heat and power renewable energy plant which will have the capacity to generate 120MW of electricity for the national grid.
It will also be able to produce 200MW of low carbon heat, which will be supplied to industrial users.
Inspired by cargo containers at the port, the building is comprised of a series of stacked elements, with a semi-translucent sculptural form at the top.
The project is due on site in 2014 and is set to finish in 2017.
