The event attracted over 100 people from 15 different countries. The event included presentations from 5 of Alter NRG's key customers, as well as a site tour of the Tees Valley Renewable Energy Center.
Walter Howard, CEO of Alter NRG commented, "I would like to thank all of the participants in the open house. The interaction between investors, developers, engineers and industry experts was extensive and beneficial for all parties. Special thanks to Air Products for presenting and hosting a site tour to the Tees Valley Renewable Energy Facility using our technology."
Lisa Jordan from Air Products presented their business plan using the Westinghouse Plasma Technology owned by Alter NRG. Air Products is constructing its Tees Valley Renewable Energy Facility, the first of its kind in the United Kingdom (UK) and the largest of its kind in the world. Once operational, the facility will generate 49MW of electricity from non-recyclable waste and produce enough reliable, controllable and renewable electricity to power up to 50,000 homes. They expect the first plant to be in start-up phase in late 2014 and go into commercial operation in 2015. Air Products is simultaneously constructing a second 49MW energy-from-waste (EfW) Renewable Energy Facility at Teesside. It will be located on industrial land, known as the Reclamation Pond site, adjacent to the first plant.
Claire Cowen, the CEO of Cahill Energy, presented her proposed project in Barbados. Cahill Energy signed an agreement with the Government of Barbados on 15th March 2014 to build and operate a leading edge clean energy plant on the Caribbean island. Established to finance, build, own and operate utility-scale Waste to Energy plants in key markets, Cahill Energy plans to utilize the Westinghouse Plasma Technology to transform all kinds of waste on Barbados into clean, renewable energy. Cahill Energy expects to invest up to $260 million (USD) in the proposed plant which is set to be built in Vaucluse, St Thomas and providing the Government of Barbados with several hundred million dollars in estimated savings over the lifetime of the 30 year contract.
