“PHB Weserhütte S.A.U.” is currently developing the biomass handling system for the Tees Renewable Energy Plant Project, located in Teesside, United Kingdom, for the consortium Técnicas Reunidas (TR) & Samsung C&T.  Costing £650m to build, the Tees Renewable Energy Plant will be the largest dedicated biomass power plant in the world and is the largest thermal-combustion power plant under construction in the UK today.

With this project under execution, “PHB Weserhütte” confirms its position in the renewable energy sector as a global supplier of materials handling equipment with their own state of the art technology.

Laitex Oy got the opportunity to supply the material receiving station for trucks and to be part of the fuel handling. Material receiving station will be used for the fuel which arrives to the plant by wheels.

For Laitex Oy the opportunity to be part of the project will be important in many ways. We have supplied equipment and turnkey solutions all over the world during the last three decades. We believe our brand awareness will improve while the high quality of our equipment will be proven in the new state of the art power plant.

“As a notable equipment manufacturer, it is important to be involved in such a large project, and we will be looking for similar projects in the future,” says Lasse Kurronen, CEO of Laitex. “In the past, we have delivered conveyors to four of the world’s largest recovery boilers, so it is great to also have this opportunity to deliver our solutions to the world’s largest biomass plant. The energy and power plant industry is our strongest field of operations “ he sums.
