Helius Energy gains consent for 100 MW biomass plant

U.K. biomass power plant developer Helius Energy PLC has been granted consent by the Department for Energy and Climate Change to construct a 100-megawatt biomass power plant at Avonmouth Dock on Great Britain's Bristol Channel.
Helius announced the signing of an option to lease agreement for the 18-acre site in October 2008.
When complete, the power plant will be fired primarily by woody biomass and will produce enough electricity to power about 200,000 homes. Electricity will be fed to the local grid, to which Helius reports it has already secured access rights.
More details will be released as the project progresses, according to the company.
