arlier this year Finning Energy & Transportation completed the installation of the exhausts to the gensets being used in a 20MW gas peaking project at Miners Road, Wrexham, a site being developed by Terra Firma Energy Limited. Assisted by Steve Foster Cranes, the final six exhaust stacks were successfully installed, concluding the assembly work on the gensets. The gas project went live in early February 2024, this followed by the cold commissioning phase for the generators. Additionally, a 10 MW co-located solar facility will be added to the site.
 The Miners Road site, along with Terra Firma Energy’s portfolio of peaking assets, plays a vital role in the National Grid Electricity System Operator’s strategy for scalable power generation. Recent threats of rolling blackouts and planned power cuts highlight the importance of secure electricity supplies in the coming years.
 Partnering with Finning CAT for the supply of generating sets ensures that Terra Firma Energy complies with the local planning authority and environmental permits’ noise and emission limits while maximizing profit margins. With the operating permit secured, the 23 MW power plant can now operate for 8760 hours annually, significantly increasing profitability. The project delivery team is overseeing the installation of all major generation items and ancillary equipment while monitoring the offsite design and reinforcement works carried out by both SPEN (Electric) and WWU (Gas).
