Cofely, a UK-based energy and environmental services provider, has purchased a large scale energy centre from Humber Energy.
Cofely signed two long term energy service agreements for both heat and electricity with current users Lenzing Fibres, a provider of man-made fibres, and Bluestar Fibres, a producer of carbon and oxidised fibres.
The energy centre, which was sold for an undisclosed sum, can produce 48MW of electricity along with 200 tonnes of steam to an industrial park near Grimsby.
Paul Rawson, managing director of Cofely Industrial Energy Services, said, ‘This acquisition is very significant for Cofely and further strengthens our presence within the energy intensive industry sector, whilst also aligning with our strategy of further expansion into large-scale industrial CHP.
‘We are looking forward to working with users on the park to help them exploit opportunities for reducing carbon emissions, cutting production costs and complying with forthcoming legislative changes.’
