CHP Plant Initiatives

Combined Heat and Power

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. A CHP facility converts the energy left in residual material such as wood and other fuel sources, into electricity using a conventional steam cycle.

Low Cost Heat

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.
