Alastair and Magnus Sinclair, Ellon
This single tank (double ring) 500kWe Biogest Anaerobic Digester is owned and operated by the Sinclair’s. The AD plant is currently fed on a mixture of slurry, rye grass silage and whole crop silage from the Sinclair’s farm and their neighbouring farm. Digestate from the plant is spread on nearby fields, helping them deal with NVZ issues. The open day gave attendees the opportunity to hear from Alastair and Magnus Sinclair in terms of the technology choice and the challenges they have encountered in securing grid connection and getting the plant built and operational. Specific focus will also be given to optimal grass growing and harvesting techniques employed by the Sinclair’s.
