Drax (Biomass , Active)

 General Information.

Location in the UK : England, Selby, North Yorkshire    
Type of installation: Biomass    on/offshore: on
Turbines :3  Capacity : 585 MW
Approx Date of 1st power generation:



Drax plans to convert three of its six generating units to run on sustainable biomass; the first unit was converted in the second quarter of 2013, and the second and third will be converted in April 2015, and at the earliest the fourth quarter of 2015, respectively. In the meantime, Drax will operate one of our coal units as an enhanced co-firing unit from May 2014; it is this unit that will be converted in April 2015.

(As a coal fired power station) Its generating capacity of 3,960 megawatts is the highest of any power station in the United Kingdom and Western Europe, providing about 7% of the United Kingdom's electricity supply.

I do not have any information on the MW output / capacity based on Biomass. Estimated as 585MW being one biomass unit.

Drax plans to spend as much as 700 million pounds ($1.13 billion) through 2017 upgrading its boilers at Selby, northern England, ordering millions of tons of biomass from around the world and building facilities to store the fuel, including four silos each bigger than Londonís Royal Albert Hall, a 135-foot (41-meter) high concert venue with an 800-foot circumference.

The utility has hired farmers and foresters, designed special railway carriages and is investigating building wood pellet plants in North America, Thompson said.

Project Info
DRAX pulls out of £1bn carbon capture project
Energy company DRAX has abandoned a £1bn project to introduce carbon capture technology to cut emissions.

(2010) Wind farm is planned next to DRAX power station
The hub of each of the wind farmís 12 turbines will be at a height of 60m with 40m blades. The Rusholme development began after independent studies found that the area was suitable for a wind energy development.

DRAX biomass running at half capacity
A lack of storage facilities has forced the first of DRAXís converted biomass units to run with an average load factor of just 57%, the power plant operator revealed today.
