Spectacular lift marks landmark in Spencer Group biomass loading project

A spectacular operation has seen a landmark achieved in a key project reinforcing the Humber’s credentials as a leading renewable energy hub.

A huge crane lifted into place a major part of a structure built by specialist engineering business Spencer Group to enable the loading of sustainable biomass for transportation from the Port of Hull to Drax Power Station. The work is part of £100m of investment in biomass handling facilities at the Humber Ports.

The lift topped off a 43-metre (141 ft) high biomass silo tower with a “penthouse” structure, housing the drive mechanism for a conveyor belt to take the biomass from ground level, and a so-called “tambourine”, which seals the silo and supports the drive house.
