Hadfield Wood Recyclers has won a contract to supply 45,000 tonnes of biomass for a new £25m 5.4MW plant in Wrexham, north Wales.
Vicki Hughes, group business development director, said the contract added to the company’s growing biomass portfolio.
“We have been growing the biomass side of our business for a number of years o complement our wood recycling arm, which remains as strong as ever,” she said.
“We have seen an increasing number of requests to supply plants here and abroad, both small and large scale. For us, the balance is always ensuring we can consistently supply a good spec of material while ensuring it is financially viable for both parties.”
Hadfield operates from three sites in Manchester, Middlesbrough and Essex. It recycles 270,000 tonnes of wood waste a year into products including animal bedding for horses, poultry and dairy cattle, feedstock for panel board, arena surfaces and filter beds.
Hadfield supplies biomass to other UK facilities including MVV at Ridham Dock in Kent, Wilton 10 (Sembcorp) in Middlesbrough and Stevenscroft at Lockerbie. It also exports to Sweden, Germany, Netherlands and Estonia.
