Bioenergy Infrastructure Group, owner and operator of Ince Bio Power, an Energy from Waste gasifier unit firing 170,000 tonnes of waste wood per annum, has just appointed RJM to implement the 1st Phase of Engineering to further optimise plant load and reliability.

RJM has been working at the site since 2020 and has already carried out a number of plant performance improvement projects, including the addition of an Over-Fired Flue Gas Recirculation system. As a result of this major engineering project, generation campaign durations have increased by a factor of four and shut-downs to remove the (now) much smaller volumes of ash materials can be achieved in a single shift, rather than taking three or four days.​

Commenting on the new engineering project, Mark Roberts, Head of Engineering at BIG said, “We have worked closely with RJM on several projects at Ince and at its sister site, Energy Works Hull and we look forward to achieving further performance improvements following this latest Phase 1 Engineering Project and beyond”.

John Goldring, Managing Director at RJM added, “BIG is a key customer for RJM in the biomass and Energy from Waste sector and we are delighted to have been appointed to carry out this major new engineering project at Ince.

A key feature of the project will be the installation of our new IMPULSE® Cleaning System which will significantly reduce the formation of fouling on the convective surfaces. Work on the new project has already started and we anticipate that it will be completed by August 2023,” he confirmed.
