Caledonian Cheese Company CHP project reaches full capacity

As International Cheese Day was this week, it’s fitting that we have a reached a major milestone at the The Caledonian Cheese Company, part of Groupe Lactalis and the second largest dairy company worldwide.

BasePower's very first Combined Heat and Power (CHP) project in the food industry reached its capacity today when we ramped up to the full 2MW of output at the dairy in Stranraer, Scotland. Big congratulations go out to the entire team on site for their hard work in getting the project installed on schedule and for a great achievement.

BasePower’s CHP project at The Caledonian Cheese Company 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.
