Tansterne Advanced Biomass Power Plant : Update for Local Residents

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

The construction phase of the 22MW wood-powered Plant in Aldborugh is almost complete and we have now started ‘hot commissioning’.

The Plant will have two boilers and a steam turbine generator which will produce our renewable energy. The first boiler and the steam turbine generator will become operational over the coming weeks.

During this period there will be a series of “steam blows” where steam will be vented through a silencer to the atmosphere. We need to do this to make sure the pipes taking the steam to the turbine are scrupulously clean. This can result in some noise but we will aim to carry out these blows between 7am and 7pm and will minimise noise around the site whenever we can.

People may also see plumes of steam evolving from the site. This is normal while venting and it is only pure, clean steam.

Once the first boiler is fully operational, we will need to carry out similar steam blows on the second boiler a couple of months later.

We appreciate this may cause some inconvenience for local residents but assure you that this activity will be short-lived.

We are grateful for the continued support of the local community for our award winning project.

Any queries should be addressed to us at office@hrs.energy

Prestigious award for Tansterne Advanced Biomass Project

By | HRS News | No Comments

HRS Energy is celebrating after the Tansterne Advanced Biomass Project, in collaboration with CF Struthers and Solar 21/GB Bio, won ‘Best Renewables Project’ at the prestigious Humber Renewables Awards last night.

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.
