Energy Site to Generate Power Jobs; BIOMASS PLANT WOULD RUN 50,000 HOMES


Byline: DAVE JONES

AN IRISH company is planning to invest pounds 100m in a renewable energy complex that will create 35 jobs on Anglesey.

County Cork-based EcoPellets Ltd said it has bought a 55-acre site at Llangefni's Bryn Cefni Industrial Park formerly occupied by chemical company Eastman Peboc and is working with the Welsh Assembly Government on proposals for the comprehensive redevelopment of the land.

EcoPellets, a leading supplier in Ireland of wood pellet fuel, said it intends to apply for planning permission for a wood-biomass electricity plant and a four turbine commercial wind farm. Together, the turbines and biomass plant would generate 40 MW of electricity - enough to power thousands of homes.

More than 100 construction jobs would be created by the planned three-year construction programme and 35 full time jobs - mostly for technicians and engineers - would be required to man and manage the plant and wind farm. The company also has plans to work with the Assembly Government to market other parts of the site to other inward investors.

EcoPellets director Paul Kellett said: "This investment is large by renewable energy standards and will provide enough green power for 50,000 Welsh homes.

"Applications for building and operating permits are in preparation and, dependent on the necessary permissions from the local authority, we will be ready to commence the main construction activity early next year.
