Farmgen Anaerobic Digestion plant at Dryholme Farm (1st February 2012)

December 2011 sees the official turn on for latest Farmgen Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant at Dryholme Farm, near Silloth.
ABM was commissioned by Farmgen to design and write the whole of the automation software for the Plant.

The Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant at Dryholme Farm, near Silloth, started supplying electricity to the national grid in November 2011.

The switch-on marked a major milestone for farm-based AD energy production in Cumbria and for Farmgenís £30 million UK expansion plan.

The plant will produce 1.2 megawatts of electricity - enough continuous power for more than 2,200 homes - and will provide a significant boost to Cumbriaís rural economy.
The switch-on was carried out by leading member of the European Parliament Sajjad Karim, who sits on the influential Industry Research and Energy Committee.

Features of this automation system include

  • Plant wide live mimic displays
  • Full Plant Item engineering diagnostic facilities
  • Full Trending facilities
  • Daily reporting for electricity usage
  • Remote diagnostics capability
  • Email alarm functionality

This latest project part-funded by Nuclear Management Partners, through Britainís Energy Coast is set to become the first of many Farmgen AD plants around Cumbria.
