Lockheed-CoGen Team to Build UK Bioenergy Facility - top government contractors - best government contracting event

lockheeds-bioenergy-processLockheed Martin has partnered with CoGen to build a U.K. facility designed to convert waste into renewable energy.

Lockheed will oversee engineering, procurement, construction and manufacturing work on the bioenergy plant in Cardiff, Wales, and CoGen will serve as the developer and owner of the project under the teaming agreement, Lockheed said Tuesday.

Frank Armijo, vice president of Lockheed’s energy business, signed the agreement with CoGen CEO Ian Brooking.

The U.K. plant will use the Concord Blue-built Reformer technology platform that works to derive energy from waste through the advanced gasification process.

The 15-megawatt plant in Wales will work to convert 150,000 tons of waste on an annual basis into renewable energy in order to supply electricity to approximately 15,000 local households and businesses.

The companies expect construction work to start in 2018 and plan to begin operations in 2020.

England-based CoGen builds and manages facilities in the U.K. designed to convert waste into energy through the advanced gasification method.
