Drax enters into contract for biomass construction works

Drax has entered into a contract with the Shepherd Group for biomass-related construction works at the Drax Power Station site.

Last month, Drax confirmed its plans to invest £50m this year in new biomass storage and handling facilities and other plant modifications to secure full benefit from its existing co-firing facilities.

The contract with Shepherd will assist in delivering the capability to produce up to 20 per cent of the power station’s output from sustainable biomass.
