FIRST EXPORT OF CLEAN ENERGY FROM TANSTERNE ADVANCED BIOMASS PLANT

By | Uncategorised | No Comments
HRS Energy are delighted to announce the first export of power to the local grid from our award winning Biomass plant at Tansterne near Hull.
On behalf of Solar21, HRS Energy has developed and built this 22MW facility on farmland near the village of Aldbrough. Powered by Grade C waste wood which comes mainly from the local area and all from within the UK, the plant is based around a fluidised bed boiler and our patented power module which together make it the most compact and efficient clean power producing options available anywhere in the world.
This is the first of our 2-stage development on site and will provide 11MW of power initially – rising to 22MW when the second boiler is commissioned in a couple of months.

                                                                        ​

The Plant has brought valuable work to the area with more than 100 people involved in the design and construction of the plant.  HRS Energy will operate the Plant, providing c24 full time, skilled jobs.

Tansterne Advanced Biomass Power Plant : Update 15 January 2018

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

The Plant is going through the final stages of the Commissioning process.

Over the next few days we will be testing the Plant safety valves. To do this we need to vent steam into the atmosphere from the boiler’s vent silencer. The testing should only take one day to complete and will result in short bursts of noise, normally over a period of a couple of hours being emitted. It is not something we can avoid but will not be part of routine operation.

We appreciate that this may cause you some disruption and will do our best to limit this as much as possible. We will undertake this activity only during daylight hours and will complete it as quickly as safety permits.

Thank you for your patience during the development of this project. If you have any queries please contact us via office@hrs.energy and one of our staff will do their best to assist you.

TANSTERNE ADVANCED BIOMASS POWER PLANT : UPDATE

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Work continues on the Plant.

The first of two boilers has completed its ‘steam blow’ and is now coupled to the steam turbine for operation on biomass.

We will be exporting power to the grid a week before Christmas.

Thank you to all involved for their support in achieving this milestone!

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

Tansterne Advanced Biomass Project receives double award nomination

By | HRS News, Uncategorised | No Comments

HRS Energy is proud to announce that we have been shortlisted for two categories at the 2017 Humber Renewables Awards, organised by the Hull Daily Mail.

The awards seek to recognise the green innovation of companies operating in the Humber and East Yorkshire area – increasingly recognised as a national hub for renewable energy.

As a proud long-term member of the Humber business community, where our equipment is manufactured by our sister company CF Struthers, HRS Energy is delighted to be recognised for its contribution to the local area.

HRS has been shortlisted in two categories at the 2017 awards. Along with our project partners, CF Struthers and GB Bio/Solar 21, we have been nominated for the ‘Best Renewable Energy Project or Installation in the Humber Area’ prize for our world-leading £50m 21W biomass plant in Tansterne, which will be coming online next month and will provide enough clean power for 10% of the households in Hull.

We have also been shortlisted in the ‘Green Innovation’ category for the Advanced Biomass Power Generator – the technology being constructed at Tansterne – which brings together several of HRS’s ground-breaking innovations to set a new global standard in efficient biomass generation.

These nominations reinforce HRS Energy’s position as both an engaged local player and a world-leading renewable energy developer.

The ceremony will be taking place on 9th March at The Deep in Hull.

Mark Wickham, Managing Director of HRS Energy, said:

‘We are honoured to have been shortlisted for these prestigious awards. HRS is proud of its association with the Humber region and to be recognised locally for the work that we are doing is a great feeling.’

 ‘We are very much looking forward to serving the community with clean power once Tansterne bcomes operational next month.’
