Weedon Architects were appointed by HZI (Hitachi Zosen INOVA) to provide Architectural Services for this second multifuel power station for SSE at Ferrybridge.
The project, known as Ferrybridge multifuel 2 (FM2), will have a generating capacity of circa 90MW and will produce enough energy to power around 160,000 homes. FM2 is similar in scale to the FM1 project currently in Operation.
The multifuel project is beneficial as it is a positive use of waste materials that may otherwise be disposed of to landfill, saving valuable landfill space. FM2 will treat up to 675,000 tonnes of waste derived fuels each year; however on average the plant’s throughput is expected to be 570,000 tonnes per annum.
