The efficiencies will be gained by fitting new, high tech pipework and valves, with new high efficiency blading and long-life seals within the turbines on biomass units 1, 2 and 3. Since transforming half of the power station to run on compressed wood pellets instead of coal, the power station has become Europe’s biggest decarbonisation project – and the UK’s largest single site renewable power generator. “We firmly believe that biomass has a long-term role to play in the UK’s energy infrast...
