Ferguson Planning have been central in the coordination of the project team and leading the planning process in seeking full permission for the construction of a significant Anaerobic Digestion Plant on farm land some 2 miles south of Oxton. The development would include the installation of the following key components: Fermenter, Digestate Storage Tank, Pre-Storage Tanks, Feeder, Technical/Communications Building, Silage Clamp Area and associated access path.
The plant will be able to process in the region of 54,000 tonne of substrate per annum. Producing a biogas yield of c. 959 nm3/h, methane yield of 509nm3/h. It equates to a electrical equivalent of c. 2.5 mw or 5mw thermal output.
