A multi-million pound energy project that will help ensure the sustainability of Valero’s Pembroke refinery into the future has been given the go ahead.
The £127m project will create a combined heat and power (CHP) co-generation unit which will provide power for the refinery.
It’s hoped the 45 megawatt unit, which will burn natural gas and recycle 50 tonnes of high pressured steam every hour, will help Valero better control future electricity costs and achieve greater energy efficiency.
