The first UK power station to start the conversion process to full biomass electricity production.
Generating 420MW of electricity and saving approximately 1.5mt of CO2 emissions.
One of the most ambitious renewable energy investment projects in the UK over recent years.
Lynemouth Power Station is owned by parent company, EPH, a Czech-based organisation that has become one of the world’s leading operators with more than 20 global power plants.
The company’s commitment to the UK saw, as part of the £450m conversion programme, significant new investment which included the construction of six 194ft high silos, new fuel handling facilities as well as the reopening of the trainline from the Port of Tyne direct to the power station. Lynemouth was the first power station to start the process from coal to biomass in the UK, and is one of the largest in Europe.
“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)
