E.ON Awarded On-Site Generation Contract For DS Smith

DS Smith have announced plans to construct a state-of-the-art combined heat and power (CHP) facility at Kemsley Paper Mill in Kent.

According to the company, the new centre will replace the existing CHP and extend E.ON's partnership at the site with DS Smith for the next 20 years.

Efficient And Sustainable

The new plant has been designed to be more efficient and sustainable, with a carbon reduction of 36,000 tonnes per year.

It will also have an electrical capacity of c75MW, generating steam and power for DS Smith's production process at the Kemsley Mill site.

The partnership is set to improve resource efficiencies and contribute to DS Smith's goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030.

The energy company will finance, build and operate the CHP and is planned for commission in 2021.

"Partnering with E.ON to develop a state-of-the-art solution to meet our long-term energy requirements is a vital element to achieve this ambition and we expect to see a 36,000 tonnes per year carbon reduction from improved efficiency at the new facility," said Colin McIntyre, CEO, DS Smith Paper and Recycling Division.

“Energy security, lower costs, and greater efficiency are key to a sustainable future for manufacturing sites and we are proud our bespoke solutions will contribute to our ongoing relationship with DS Smith and future success at the Kemsley site," added Michael Lewis, CEO, E.ON UK.
