The awards, which are sponsored by Siemens and run by the Hull Daily Mail, recognise the green innovation of companies operating in the Humber and East Yorkshire area – increasingly acknowledged as a leading national hub for renewable energy.
The Tansterne development, designed by HRS, manufactured by CF Struthers and financed by Solar 21/GB Bio, saw off strong competition to take home the award for Best Project.
The £50m 21W biomass plant will come online next month, and will provide enough clean power for 10% of the households in Hull. It will combine world-leading technologies to produce some of the most efficient, flexible and cost-effective clean power on the market – using sustainably sourced local waste wood as a fuel stock.
As a proud long-term member of the Humber business community, HRS Energy is thrilled to have been recognised for our contribution to the local area – and for leading the way in renewable power generation.
Mark Wickham, Managing Director of HRS Energy, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to have won the award for Best Renewables Project.
“The Humber is one of the most vibrant and dynamic areas of the UK and is probably now the foremost region for renewables development.
“To win ‘best project’ here is therefore a significant accolade – and as long-standing member of the local community it feels even more special.”
Look out for the Hull Daily Mail’s special feature on the Awards, being published next week.
