 Outstanding efficiency

Drax Power Ltd. is one of the largest operators of power stations in Great Britain. To boost its capacities to generate power from biomass, Drax invested in a prototype plant to process pellets at its location in Goole, East Riding. The pellets are then employed in a CO2-neutral co-firing operation at the company's nearby coal-fired power station.

Efficient supply process design

We support Drax in the handling and transport of bales of raw straw with Demag state-of-the-art crane systems – thus playing a major role in enhancing supply processes for an improved carbon footprint.

To meet the specific requirements of the application, we installed a double-girder overhead travelling crane equipped with a sophisticated grab in the new, 1,700 m² storage area to serve the production process efficiently and effectively.
