Drax Group plc
Drax Power Limited is the operating subsidiary of Drax Group plc and the owner and operator of Drax Power Station, the largest, cleanest and most efficient coal-fired power station in the UK.
The output capacity of our six generators is 4,000 megawatts, making us nearly twice the size of the next largest coal-fired power station in the UK. We sell the large majority of our power through the wholesale market, with the remainder sold through our recently aquired supply company, Haven Power Limited. We currently provide enough power to meet 7% of the UK’s electricity needs.
As well as being an important strategic asset nationally, Drax is also vital to the local economy. Drax Power employs some 760 people and supports many other local jobs indirectly.
Against this contribution we make every effort to balance our commitment to the country’s energy needs with minimising environmental impacts on land, air and water. Our generating units are fitted with flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) equipment removing at least 90% of the sulphur dioxide (SO2) from emissions, and through retrofitting boosted over fire air (BOFA) technology on all our boilers we are reducing still further emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOX). At the same time, by-products of the coal combustion and FGD processes are recycled through their further use in the construction industry.
