This new £160m biomass plant will generate up to 40MW of electricity for local homes and businesses in and around Port Talbot area.

The project comprises a woodchip building, 4m deep reception bunker, boiler building, turbine building, office building, 132kV substation and S38 highway works.

3D modelling was utilised to coordinate the structure, plant, building services and external site wide infrastructure.

The site was underlain by a layer of peat, the full removal of which was not deemed viable by the client. Through significant collaborative effort a cost effective solution was reached that allowed a significant portion of the peat to remain in place without negatively impacting the design.

Key Features

  • 59m x 25m x 16m high reinforced concrete waste bunker to provide up to 5 days storage.
  • Extensive coordination of structure and plant through 3D modelling.
  • Full REVIT model created for structural works.
  • Full Civil3D model created for external infrastructure.
