We operate a co-generation plant to produce about 140 tonnes of steam per hour and about 92 Mwh of electricity for use by ourselves and other customers. Part of the energy plant assets are owned by Npower Cogen on mill land. The mill owns and operates the process residue combustor which produces steam by burning process residue from the recycling process. The steam is used for electricity generating before being used in the paper making process.
We operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 52 weeks a year and about 140 of our employees work a 12 hour shift arrangement, whilst the remainder work standard weekdays. Our people combine the craft, skills and experience of a long established paper-making industry with the most modern technologies available to manufacture ‘Renaissance’ premium quality newsprint. We did employ 380 people and 20 apprentices. We operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week More
