About the event

A site visit to Edenderry Power Plant with Padraig Nolan and Tom Egan.

Edenderry Power Plant has an installed capacity of up to 128 MW of electricity and supplies about 2.5% of Ireland’s national requirement. Originally developed as a peat-fired power plant, Edenderry Power Plant is now co-fired with a mixture of peat and carbon-neutral biomass. The use of biomass as a co-fuel commenced in 2008 and has increased steadily year-on-year. As part of its energy policy, the Irish government set a 30% biomass co-firing target for all of the peat-fired stations by 2015. This target required the displacement of around 300,000 energy tonnes (ET) of peat at the Edenderry plant and the station has now exceeded that target. The power station utilises modern Fluidised Bed Boiler and Open Cycle Gas Turbine technology to enable a highly efficient rate of energy conversion in their processes.
