Delivering a sustainable energy solution at Ridham Docks
Ridham Docks was initially established during the First World War as an avenue to distribute ammunition.
Located on the banks of the River Swale in Kent, the docks have also historically been used to import raw materials for the creation of newsprint at Kemsley Mill. The port is now connected with the UK rail network and houses over 11,000 square meters of warehousing space.
The docks can accommodate vessels up to 5000 DWT and a large variety of cargoes can be handled here. The site also houses a 40-tonne capacity crane, which can handle containers and heavy products.
Biomass Power at Ridham Docks
Generating usable power from renewable source is an integral part of a new and sustainable energy supply to operations at Ridham Docks.
One way to produce environmentally friendly energy is using old and waste wood as fuel to generate electricity and usable heat.
Linear Controls Ltd have employed this technology at the biomass plant at Ridham Dock near Sittingbourne (Kent).
