Large peat and biomass-fired power station at the Cushaling river near Edenderry
128 MW (gross) baseload plant. Consumes just over 1 million tonnes (7.7PJ ) of fuel (biomass & peat) each year.
Capable of generating up to 120 MWe of power
As of 2020, the plant is co-fired with about 62% biomass (delivered by around 60 heavy goods vehicles per day), of which 336,000 energy tonnes (or 80%) is Irish.
The station has a target of 100% biomass by 2023.
The ash is sent by rail and deposited at the adjacent Cloncreen bog near Clonbullogue (alternative source suggests c. 32,000 tonnes/year goes to licensed landfill)
Water 220m3/hour abstracted from river Figile at Clonbullogue
