By Wednesday February 15th, 2017HRS News, Uncategorised

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.’
