Employment for around 40 people is set to be created at a new energy plant on the outskirts of Brigg.

Developments are underway at the Brigg Renewable Energy Plant on the former Sugar Factory site.

Piling activities have been taking place this month at the plant, which sits to the south west of Brigg, near the River Ancholme.

When the renewable energy plant is fully completed, in December 2015, it will generate 40MW of green electricity, enough to supply 75,000 homes.

The new plant will use proven, efficient technology specifically designed for the clean combustion of locally grown straw.

It will also save more than 250,000 tons of polluting CO2.

Present working on the construction site is taking place from seven in the morning to around six in the evening on Monday to Friday and from eight in the morning to around two in the afternoon on Saturday.

And the construction 
activities, the company is 
assuring residents nearby, is within the guidelines and levels set by the local planning authority in the planning consent.

Seven noise monitoring points around the site are being monitored up to four times a day.

This work is being carried out with the knowledge and consent of North Lincolnshire Council and other 
relevant agencies.

And it is expected the current piling activities will continue until the end of this month.

Further information about the day-to-day construction activities are available from the Duty Manager of Brigg Renewable Energy Plant, on 07928 496380.
