Goole handled a number of 20 tonne heavy lifts of parts for an air cooled condenser that were being shipped from Rotterdam to Ferrybridge.

In an operation planned by Associated British Ports and the heavy lift specialists Collets, the components were lifted ashore.

The components were for the Ferrybridge Multifuel 2 (FM2) project, construction of which began in 2016. The project is owned and will be operated by Multifuel Energy Ltd (MEL), a 50:50 joint venture between SSE – formerly Scottish & Southern Energy – and Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. MEL also operates the FM1 project, which began work in 2015.

Both projects are located on land adjacent to SSE’s Ferrybridge ‘C’ coal fired power station, which ceased generation in 2016 after 50 years of service. Commercial operations at the site will start in 2019. The FM2 will be able to treat up to 675,000 tonnes of waste derived fuels each year, fuel which would otherwise have gone to landfill.
