Drax is the largest coal-fired power station in the UK, based in North Yorkshire. It is responsible for 6% of the UK’s power, plans to move forward onto cleaner renewable energy sources are in place at this station and it has gone through an incredible transformation by converting and upgrading some of its generating units to use sustainably compressed wood pellets instead of coal.

This visit includes 2 elements which will be guide led. The bus tour has stops to get closer to some of the structures on site like biomass domes and cooling towers, and the walking part of the tour is through the main generation areas. After the tour there will be a presentation from Darren Walker (Repower Programme Manager), with a Q&A.

This visit will allow you to gather a much broader understanding into the new laws that are being put into place for power stations to help the environment and industry become cleaner and more renewable source of power, as well as see the power station in full working order.
