Barr Farm A.D. Plant
Barr Farm is a partially buried, twin-tank, semi-plug flow anaerobic digestion (AD) plant based in Lincolnshire; designed to generate 165kW from maize.
Since the plant has been running it has generated over 791,967 kW/h of electricity and the CHP’s run time has averaged 96%.
From investing in the anaerobic digestion plant, the business has not only gained an income from generating and exporting electricity to the grid and using the heat produced; they have also attained a separate revenue stream by distributing electricity to Moy Park’s nearby poultry units.
