Danish firm Ramboll has been chosen to deliver engineering consultancy services for the conversion of the UK’s Lynemouth Power Station from coal to biomass.

After conversion, the plant will be able to export approximately 390MW of low-carbon electricity to the national grid.

Ramboll’s power division vice director Mike Wheeler said: "Our ability to deliver large-scale and expert resources required by power sector clients to support such projects has been critical.

"After conversion, the plant will be able to export approximately 390MW of low-carbon electricity to the national grid."

"This project provides Ramboll with its highest profile UK energy sector appointment to date."

Wood pellets will be imported to Lynemouth Power Station from the global fuel supply markets through a new biomass import terminal at the Port of Tyne in Newcastle. Ramboll will be responsible for the import along with the power plant and site fuel storage and handling.

The Danish company has been selected to provide project management and design services for the project, including project and programme management, expert design review, safety and site management, co-ordination of several construction packages, and managing cross-cutting interface issues for LPL.
