Letting off steam

Residents and businesses near a new renewable energy power station being built at Riverside Industrial Estate in Marsh Lane, Boston, have been notified of the possibility of noise and steam during a testing procedure.

Steam will vent from the structure during a cleaning phase on and around Monday, February 12. There will be a low-key continuous flow of steam for about a week.

Then, from February 26, there will be a series of short steam blasts at half-hour intervals for two to seven days between the hours of 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday.

The operators say this noise will not be representative of the energy from waste plant under normal operation.
