A proposed Multi Fuel Combined Heat and Power (CHP) facility is under consideration as this allows the opportunity to provide another form of renewable electricity generation on site. This facility converts the energy left in residual material such as wood and other fuel sources, into electricity using a conventional steam cycle.
In addition to the CHP process producing electricity, the facility could enable low cost heat and cooling to a potential data centre, R&D facility and/or clean tech businesses that could locate adjacent to the Kilroot site, including the neighbouring Kilroot Business Park.Learn More
This proposal is currently undergoing a formal process of Pre-Application Community Consultation before a planning application is submitted to Mid and East Antrim Borough Council.
