Eco 2 (North Lincs Ltd) has bought 13 acres of the former British Sugar factory at Scawby Brook, now known as Glanford Vale Business Park.
A spokesman for Eco 2 said: "We are pleased that the Brigg Renewable Energy Project is progressing following us getting planning permission in October last year.
"The project will create 80 jobs in the area, 50 linked to the fuel supply and 30 operational positions. The 40mw plant will generate 300 million units of electricity – enough to supply all the homes in North Lincolnshire."
Charles Atkinson, a partner at agent PPH Commercial, handled the deal, acting for Norfolk-based The Property Recycling Group PLC.
He said: "It is very pleasing to see that after more than four years of hard work in obtaining planning and overcoming the various hurdles, we have completed the sale of this brownfield site.
"It is excellent news for Brigg and the local economy and I wish Eco2 all the best in its plans."
