ALEXANDRA DOCK BIOMASS POWER STATION
RES is developing a renewable energy project fuelled by wood-based biomass at Alexandra Dock, working closely with Peel Ports at the Port of Liverpool. The biomass power station will be 150MW in size. At 150MW the power station has the capacity to generate 1,100GWh of renewable electricity per year which is the equivalent to the average annual electricity consumption of around 250,000 average British households.
With a skilled workforce and track record in logistics management and technology innovation, the North West region is well-placed to reap the economic as well as the environmental benefits of the growth in renewable energy.
ABOUT PEEL PORTS AND THE PORT OF LIVERPOOL
RES is working closely with the the Port of Liverpool, where the site is located. Peel Ports is Britain's second largest group of Ports and the Port of Liverpool is the largest of the Peel Ports. The Port handles over 33 million tonnes of cargo each year across a range of containerised and bulk products including forest products, biomass fuels and wind turbine components that already serve the renewable energy industry across the UK. Additional bulk cargoes that the Port handles regularly include animal feed products, grain and coal.
