Biofuel Storage Area & Feed System
To design, manufacture, manage and install a 400m³ biomass storage and feed system at a power station.
As part of the government’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, new legislation enforced a target for all energy providers to supply 10% of their electricity supplied in the UK from renewable energy sources by 2010 and a reduction in emissions of some 60% from current levels by about 2050. In 2001 renewable energy accounted for just 3% of UK electricity supply.
As a coal fired power station, the number of feasible options in providing a set percentage of electricity derived from a renewable source was limited. One such system solution was a bio-fuels storage and feed system.
The system involved a 400m³ raw material reception and storage facility complete with feed transfer systems onto the main coal feed conveyors inside the main junction tower. The transfer feed system is capable of handling a wide range of Bio-fuels at 40TPH to the existing belt conveyors leading to the main fuel process plant.
The covered storage area was constructed from a pre-cast walling system which supported the roof structure.
A continuous, uninterrupted process; providing the required level (10% per annum) of electricity derived from a renewable source.» Return to previous page
With mother nature pushing on regardless of coronavirus and this year’s harvest just around the corner, we’ve had to get these conveyors installed whilst practis
We have remained open since the start of “lockdown” and our engineers have been working hard (and safely) in difficult circumstances, to ensure that we meet with
