Wilton 10 Power Plant

Teesside

Power

Located in Teesside, the Sembcorp Biomass Station – also known as Wilton 10 - was the largest biomass project in the UK to use wood as its renewable fuel sources when it began production in 2007.

The £64 million plant is generating 30 megawatts of 'green' electricity – the equivalent to the amount required to power around 55,000 homes – using around 300,000 tonnes of sustainably sourced wood each year.

The wood for the station comes from different sources – recycled wood previously sent to landfill sites, small roundwood logs from managed forestry operations throughout the North East an off cuts from saw mills.

The plant was built partly in response to government policy for more energy to be generated from renewable sources.
