Tansterne Biomass Plant – up-coming works

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Work will be taking place to clean, test and restart equipment at the Plant which may result in some localised noise disturbance.

This will occur as a result of Steam Blowing activity which we expect to start next Tuesday 4th December.  The noise will not be continuous but the work will last for approximately a week.

We value the patience of our neighbours at Tansterne and apologise for this potential disruption.

If you would like to be kept up-to-date on progress at the Plant you can register your email address with us at

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 and one of our staff will do their best to assist you.

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
