Caunton Engineering erected its second renewable energy centre in Lincolnshire working on behalf of Burmeister and Wain Scandinavian Contractor (BWSC). The first project was a similar project in Sleaford where more than 1,600t of steel was erected.
The £90M Brigg project, based on the town’s former British Sugar works, will generate renewable electricity using straw and woodchip as a sustainable fuel source.
Caunton fabricated, supplied and erected 1,300t of structural steelwork for a boiler house, turbine hall, office building, two straw barns, a straw conveyor and wood chip storage buildings, and also responsible for designing connections, detailing, galvanizing, fire protection, secondary steelwork, cladding and the installation of metal decking.
The Brigg facility will generate 40MW of power on a continuous basis, equivalent to the needs of every home in North Lincolnshire.
