Groupe Lactalis has signed a power purchase agreement for the installation of a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system from BasePower at The Caledonian Cheese Company in Stranraer, Scotland.

Lactalis says the move will lower both energy costs and CO2​ emissions.

BasePower, which will develop and build a fully containerized CHP system on The Caledonian Cheese Company manufacturing site, has financed the agreement.

BasePower will oversee the scheme’s operation, which is projected to generate 77% of all the site’s electricity consumption, supply 24% of heat usage, and save at least 2,000 tons of CO2​ per year. With construction already under way, the project is targeted to be operational by December 2016.
