Sleaford REP ‘Hot Commissioning’ set to commence
A crucial phase between the construction and full operation of the Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant is set to begin this week. A process known as ‘hot commissioning’ is due to commence this week and will last for a period of approximately six weeks. In essence, this process involves the release of high pressure steam that is necessary to clean the newly built plant system.
Steam will be released through a purposely designed temporary outlet for short periods of 5 to 10 minutes three or four times a day. This will take place between 9am and 6pm Monday to Saturday. The steam blowing will take place in two phases with a break of approximately eleven days in between phases. During these periods it may be possible to hear the release dependant on prevailing weather conditions. This operation is a necessary requirement in the commissioning of any power station and what may be heard is just high pressure steam and shouldn’t be a cause for concern to the public.
