Lockheed Martin, CoGen to build 15-MW WtE plant in Wales
The signing of the teaming agreement for waste-to-energy projects in the UK.
US security and aerospace company Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) said today it has teamed up with England-based CoGen Limited to develop energy-from-waste projects in the UK.
The pair will start their collaboration with an up-to-15-MW project in Cardiff, Wales. The particular plant will process some 150,000 tonnes of waste annually to generate enough power for about 15,000 homes and local businesses.
CoGen will be the owner and developer of the project, while Lockheed Martin will be in charge of the engineering, procurement, manufacturing and construction of the facility. They will use Concord Blue's Reformer technology, which converts almost any kind of organic waste into energy through a process known as advanced gasification.
Construction work in Cardiff is expected to start in 2018, with completion seen in 2020.
