Margam Biomass Power Station, South Wales, UK

Involvement in the first commercial biomass power station in Wales.

This project was the first commercial biomass power station in Wales. It is wood-fired, with a generating capacity of 12MW. QuadConsult staff were involved in aspects of the civil engineering design which was complicated by the shallow water table and the proximity of a SSSI on the southern boundary. They also acted as design co-ordinator for the small power M & E consultancy on behalf of the contractor

The construction manager was BWSC from Denmark, and the project was constructed for Eco2. QuadConsult Limited has a continuing involvement with the project and provides ad hoc civil and structural engineering support.
