The first UK power station to start the conversion process to full biomass electricity production.
Expected to generate 420MW of electricity once complete, saving 1.5mt of CO2 emissions.
One of the most ambitious renewable energy investment projects in the UK over recent years.
Owned by Czech-based EPH, a leading operator of more than 20 power plants worldwide, Lynemouth Power Station (LPL) is at the forefront of the UK’s energy market.
The current conversion to biomass is now in its final stages and has seen major project requirements both on and off-site. These include the construction of six new silos, the development of bespoke, large-scale handling facilities at the Port of Tyne, resurrection of the trainline from the port direct to Lynemouth Power Station, and a comprehensive overhaul and modification of all on-site equipment.
“The UK energy market is important for EPH and we’re looking to work closely with Government and key stakeholders to invest in its future for long-term growth. We are fully committed to the UK and making LPL a trailblazing site.”
Tom Bains, CEO of EP UK Investments (UK division of EPH)
