Carlisle Distribution Centre at Carlisle Lake District Airport

Carlisle Lake District Airport is a key asset in Stobart Group’s portfolio with the current plans for its development set to bring commercial passenger flights to Cumbria and open up exciting tourist opportunities for the Lake District.
Harnessing its experience from a similar development project – the hugely successful London Southend Airport – Stobart Rail is managing the entire scheme at all stages from project planning right through to implementation.
Stobart Rail has already developed an expertise for developments like this and has undertaken management of similar freight distribution centre construction projects in Widnes and Daresbury.
Similarly the company has overseen expansion works at London Southend Airport, which included runway expansion and the construction of a new terminal building.

Widnes Combined Heat and Power Plant Update

The project involves the construction and operation of a £11-m, 20.2MWE (gross) waste wood biomass combined heat and power (CHP) plant and wood processing facility, and is the largest waste wood renewable energy plant in the North West.

With a team of 70, work at Widnes is progressing well. The sub-structure works are going at pace with approximately 80% of this element complete.

Construction is underway on the new biomass plant at Widnes and in December the boiler was transported and fixed into place. As the boiler itself weighs 125 tonnes, this was a project in itself as a haul-road had to be constructed and two 250 tonne cranes lifted it onto four bogies that transported it to the site. A 650 tonne crane and a 250 tonne crane were used to successfully lift it into the frame and onto its permanent position within the new biomass plant.

The superstructure works including reinforced walls, precast walls, steelwork and cladding is due to commence January 2016 with completion set for August 2016.

Sutton Park

Stobart Forestry is currently involved in harvesting undermanaged woodland, extracting primarily roundwood and brash. The project is in its research and development phase whereby Phil Jones, Stobart Forestry Contract Manager and his team, are surveying suitable sites.

The first test site at Sutton Park is currently underway. The process will mean Stobart Forestry will source and provide material to be transported by Stobart Biomass to facilities where it will be made into pellets which will provide a renewable energy source.
