Wagons roll in Liverpool

[ October 27, 2015   //   ]

Following the completion of its new bulk terminal earlier this month, the Port of Liverpool despatched its first trainload of sustainable biomass pellets to Drax Power Station in Yorkshire.
A freight train with 25 specially-designed wagons carrying 1,600 tonnes of pellets left the port on 26 October for the 99-mile journey to the power station, which last year provided more than 12 per cent of the UK’s renewable electricity.
