Drax Power Station — Immingham & Hull
investment in the world’s largest renewable fuels terminal
Drax Power’s drive to switch its power generators from coal to the more environmentally-friendly use of biomass, required an investment from ABP in new storage and handling facilities at both Immingham, one of the world’s largest renewable fuels terminal, and at the Port of Hull.
In order to facilitate the change in feedstock, ABP invested £130m in the design and build of the the world’s largest reception facility for biomass cargo; the Immingham Renewable Fuels Terminal, along with new storage and handling facilities at Hull, taking ABP’s investment up to £150m. The work at Immingham also included upgrading the rail link from the terminal direct to the Drax power station, helping reduce transfer times from four to two hours.
ABP will continue to invest in order to develop the terminal facilities required to support Drax's operations.
