The wagon is a modified HHA coal hopper wagon which has covers fitted to ensure that the product is kept dry while being conveyed from loading site to destination.

The wagon modification was manufactured by WH Davis and offers the most advanced design covered hopper wagon in the UK biomass market, Freightliner said.

The wagon has been moved from WH Davis to the Freightliner workshops at York and has already had viewings from several generating companies who are examining the potential for the generation of renewable power from sustainable biomass.

“The wagon and concept has been extremely well received so far by everyone. We have worked well with the designers and manufacturers to develop this wagon,” said Michael Leadbetter, Freightliner’s general manager coal & biomass.

“Having developed its design following consultation with the generation industry, I am now confident to inject it into the market and we will be undertaking trials with it in the near future.”
